Philadelphia City Council Raises $30,000 for Local Families In Need
On February 21, members of the Philadelphia City Council put aside politics for one night and joined together in a star-studded, bipartisan talent show and fundraiser for Philabundance.
City Council’s Got Talent featured performances from Jannie L. Blackwell, Marian B. Tasco, Council President Darrell L. Clarke and many other spirited council members and staffers. From whirling dance numbers to stand-up comedy, all acts were judged by former Council President Anna C. Verna, former Mayor John F. Street, and radio personality Joe Conklin.
The entertaining night ended with a presentation of $30,000, (equivalent to 60,000 meals) toward hunger relief efforts in the Delaware Valley, which was accepted by Philabundance President Bill Clark.
Many thanks to the City Council, and all who helped make this wonderful evening possible!
