Regina Black-LennoxPBP congratulates our Director of Philanthropy and Corporate Social Responsibility, Regina Black Lennox, who accepted the Distinguished Advocate Award from the Support Center for Child Advocates (SCCA) this month. PBP’s Founder and CEO, Ed Satell, said: “Regina has been a continuous Super Hero as our Director of Philanthropy, improving the lives of disadvantaged children. We are proud of all she accomplishes for so many in need”. Asked by the SCCA’s CEO, Frank Cervone, to accept the award, Regina, a life-long educator and volunteer, commented: “I’m humbled to be included among the Support Center’s friends. Their work is vital. They truly change the story for so many of our most vulnerable children”.

On April 19 at the Crystal Tearoom, The SCCA, Philadelphia’s acclaimed pro bono legal and social services agency, celebrated its fortieth anniversary by awarding its Distinguished Advocate honors during its Anniversary Benefit Reception & Auction. The SCCA chose to recognize “40 for 40” – forty friends, volunteers and community leaders as their 2017 Distinguished Advocates. Frank Cervone said: “These are the special people who make our work with children possible.” The mission of the SCCA is to advocate for victims of child abuse and neglect with the goal of securing safety, justice, well-being and a permanent, nurturing environment for every child.

The 2017 event raised over $600,000, with almost 900 people participating. All proceeds directly benefit the Support Center’s work, advocating for abused and neglected children.
