Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia hosts ribbon-cutting ceremony


The Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia (CSCGP) hosted an official ribbon-cutting ceremony at the newly expanded building at its Gilda’s Club location.

The addition was named Jackson Hall in acknowledgement of the gift made in memory of Eugene and Marie Louise Jackson given by Susan and Richard Tressider. A local building contractor, Ken Farabee, was also honored for donating his talent, time and energy building Jackson Hall.

Cancer Support Community at Gilda’s Club is located at 200 Kirk Road in Warminster. It is an historic farmhouse on the site of the former Johnsville Naval Airbase Commander’s home as well as being one of the stops on the Underground Railroad. More than 150 free programs are offered every month at this site for children, teens and adults living with any cancer at any stage of the disease. Programs include one on one counseling, resources, support groups, educational workshops, mind-body and wellness programs, nutrition programs, social programs, summer camp and other special programs for children and teens.

““We are so grateful for the donation from Sue and Rich that made this much needed expansion possible as well as the hard work and leadership of Ken. He was able to complete this project on time so we could utilize the large meeting space to continue to hold our free programs safely, socially distant during the pandemic,” said Kelly Harris, CEO.
