Bonnie-DiCarlo-Judy-Bannon-JoAnn-ForresterCelebrate & Share, founded by Bonnie DiCarlo and JoAnn R. Forrester in 2002, features the achievements of women, and raises funds for organizations which focus on the needs of women and children in our community.

Cribs for Kids® Proceeds from this event will benefit Cribs for Kids® Infant Safe Sleep Initiative, founded in 1998 by District Attorney and Cribs for Kids® Advisory Board Chairman, Stephen A. Zappala, Jr.; Cribs for Kids® Executive Director, Judith Bannon; and the late Mayor Bob O’Connor and Commander Gwen Elliot. This vital initiative is instrumental in preventing accidental, sleep-related, infant deaths by educating parents and caregivers about practicing safe sleep for their babies, and by providing portable cribs for infants in need of safe sleeping environments. Since then, the program has expanded throughout Pennsylvania and to more than 450 Partner Programs, saving babies throughout the United States.
