On Friday I had the privilege of visiting the American Cancer Society AstraZeneca Hope Lodge. The Hope Lodge is this year’s recipient of the Joy of Giving Charity Event taking place in only 2 short weeks on Saturday Nov 16th from 6 to 9 pm at BellaNor Boutique (7117 Germantown Ave Philadelphia, PA 19119). The charity event is a product drive for items from the Hope Lodge’s wish list. This is a free event. Cost of admission is your donation. Your donation entitles you to refreshments, after hours shopping, and entry into the raffles and giveaways. I hope to see many of you there.

Lodge in Philly or any of the other 31 Hope Lodges located throughout the country?
