White Dog Café founder to speak at Sacred Heart Parish


Judy Wicks, founding owner of Philadelphia’s “White Dog Café” and the founder of the Philadelphia region’s Sustainable Business Network, will speak about “Local Living Economies: Green, Fair and Fun,” on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 7:30 p.m. at the Church of the Sacred Heart, South Broadway and Ferry avenues in Camden. Well-known for her presentations on the burgeoning green foods movement, Wicks will speak on behalf of the Center for Environmental Transformation (CfET), a Sacred Heart affiliate whose mission is bringing environmental justice to poor, urban environments. General admission tickets for the lecture only are $10 each and may be purchased through The CfET website at: www.camdencenterfortransformation.org/Publish/donation.html or at camden.cfet@gmail.com or by calling the Center at 856-365-8111.

A special sponsor’s “Meet and Greet” event will take place prior to the lecture starting at 6 p.m. at the Center at 1729 Ferry Avenue, adjacent to the church. Tickets are $50.

This major fundraising event for the Center includes generating 50 business or individual sponsorships at several levels; some of which include the “meet and greet” event, special VIP seating, additional tickets and promotional acknowledgement in event materials.

The Center for Environmental Transformation is a non-profit, faith-based organization founded in 2007 to promote its mission of environmental and social justice in deprived urban areas including Waterfront South, Camden.
