Beyond Celiac, the national celiac advocacy organization based right here in the Philadelphia area, has received an anonymous $20,000 matching grant to complete by the end of October. Contributions from new donors will be matched 2-to-1 and donations from existing donors will be doubled. Consider helping the group obtain the full value of the matching pledge by contributing today through this link.
If you're in the Philadelphia area, consider joining Beyond Celiac on Thursday, October 13 at its 3rd Annual Samuel Gee Society Reception. This year, it's a kid-friendly event that will take place at a lovely private home in Gwynedd Valley, Pennsylvania. Guests will gather for an evening of delightful gluten-free fare, cocktails, music and "ask the dietitian" as the group recognizes six young contributors who are actively working to make their world with celiac disease more livable. Christina Pirello from public television's Christina Cooks! fame will be doing a kid-friendly healthy-cooking demonstration. The main event runs from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., with a VIP pre-event reception beginning at 6 p.m.
Tickets are available online or by contacting Nancy Ginter of Beyond Celiac at 267-419-2101.
