Sisters Place's revisits 1920s with Friends at the Tables benefit
Celebrating two decades of helping homeless single parents and their children, the young professionals board of Sisters Place took over the Riverboat Room of the Omni William Penn on Aug. 14 for its Friends at the Tables event and proved that casino games and a Roaring Twenties dress code make for a good night, but stacks of play money make it so much better.
“With me, it's better because I keep losing,” Art Baker said.
Co-chaired by Lisa D'Onofrio and Mary Pat Stahler, the benefit evening never lost sight of the 240 families who have made the safe transition from house to home.
“We've helped a lot of people in 20 years,” said executive director Sister Mary Parks. “It's a labor of love for the sisters.”
Among the Friends at the Table were Nicole Bielick, Jacqueline Dully, Matt Arch, Natalie Wilson, Thomas Jamison, Katie Layendecker, Joy Leventon, Antonio LaMarca, Ashley Battle and Lorie Ulmer.
