For Pete's Sake is a compassionate and responsive community!
We hosted 11 Lunch Bunch Events, 1 Traveler Reception, 1 Community Day at the Phillies, our Adopt a Family Christmas Gift program (helping make the holidays brighter for 45 families) and welcomed dozens of patients and their caregivers to our gala, fashion show, golf tournament and walk! We launched a monthly self-care newsletter for our patients and caregivers, and have been overjoyed by the connections made within our patient and caregiver community through these moments to take a break. These special events and communication outlets allow us to make over 630 touchpoints with our families each year.
