She is a certified Chaplain with the Delaware County Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Program and is the former Chair and a current Commissioner of the Delaware County Women’s Commission.
Pennsylvania State Representative William F. Adolph Jr. will also be honored as a long-time supporter of the program. Adolph was first elected to represent Delaware County’s 165th Legislative District in 1988 and is now serving his 14th term.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with alumni, friends and supporters of the program while enjoying great food and raffles. The cost is $20 for New Choices alumni, $25 for others. All proceeds will benefit the New Choices program.
"It's a great time for alumni, friends and supporters of the program to come together to share their experiences, network, celebrate many years of achievement and support new graduates," says Sandy Gera, Director.
