Lucy Durr Hackney, chairman of the board and founder of the Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children, will speak on campus at a June 11 benefit for the White-Williams Scholars, a 200-year-old organization that annually helps nearly 1000 Philadelphia high school students "who, despite the effects of poverty, maintain excellent grands and show good citizenship." Through weekly $12-$18 stipends and other support, the program enables some 96% of its grantees to graduate and go on to college.
Mrs. Hackney's address, Our Children: Our Future--Who Cares?, will be given in the University Museum's Rainey Auditorium at 5:30 p.m. A reception follows in the Mosaic Gardens.
Tickets are $25 for donors; $50 for patrons; $100 for benefactors and $500 for corporate sponsors. For information: 563-0780.
