Janice Schwartz: Founder of The Jessica Beth Schwartz Memorial Scholarship Fund
13th Annual Fundraiser: The Jessica Beth Schwartz Memorial Scholarship Fund is holding their annual Jessie’s Day “Give the Gift of Scholarship” fundraising event on Sunday, November 8, 2015 from 1 – 4 p.m. This year’s fundraiser will be held at the Independence Seaport Museum, located on the picturesque Delaware River Waterfront, just steps away from Philadelphia’s historic district.
Jessie’s Day has raised over $100,000 for its namesake program, providing financial scholarships to over 40 college-bound pediatric organ transplant recipients. This year’s event will help even more students who have had organ transplants fulfill their dreams of attending college, and there are so many exciting perks you won’t want to miss out on!
By Hosts: Senator Hughes and Tiffanie Stanard (and Producer)
