There will be a classic car and truck show by West Philly’s own, Billy Young & Gasoline Alley. The Partnership CDC is also collaborating with the Lupus Foundation to try to raise awareness for lupus, a widespread but misunderstood disease that has had a direct impact on this community. The Purple Ribbon Fashion Show, being coordinated by Vonyale Williams, has a goal to raise $1,500 to donate towards research for the cure, in memory of her aunt (Gayle) and best friend (Kresslee). You can donate directly to the Lupus Foundation by clicking on the following link : http://lupus.donorpages.com/Raise4Lupus/PurpleRibbon/.
Children activities, community information, health screenings, vendors and much more will round out this years event. This event is free to the public.
