Lisa Nutter to speak in Montco 10/25


Lisa Nutter, wife of Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and an expert on childhood development, will headline the 16th annual awareness dinner of the Montgomery County Commission on Women and Families on Oct. 25 at the Whitemarsh Valley Country Club.

Lisa Nutter is president of Philadelphia Academies, Inc., a nonprofit youth development organization that works to provide career-based learning, college readiness and positive adult networks that motivate young people to graduate and prepare them for the 21st century economy.

Michele Kristofco, community relations specialist at the Montgomery County Office of Children and Youth, is to be honored as Service Provider of the Year.

The theme of the dinner is "Montgomery County Service Providers: Supporting Neighbors in Need."

"It is always difficult to choose an honoree, but Michele has exhibited such passion for her work with children, and often is the face of Office of Children and Youth in our community," said Leslie Richards, vice chair of the Montgomery County Commissioners.

Tickets to the dinner are $50. The Whitemarsh Valley Country Club is located at 815 Thomas Rd., Lafayette Hill, Pa. 19444.
