First Annual Banquet
Here are scenes from the 1st Annual Palandro-Ferry Memorial Foundation Banquet & Presentations, which was held on Sunday, October 2 at the Waterfall Room in South Philadelphia. Our 2022 recipients included Clearview Regional High School’s Vincent Marco, Janis Benstock Real Estate Academy, Providence Animal Center, and Brandywine Valley SPCA. The event was a sold-out success for the organization, and we could not be more grateful to our attendees, sponsors and donors.
