Each year the Butterfly Ball co-chairs and planning committee dedicate a segment of the gala to a Fund-A-Need effort, a specific need that attendees can donate toward in effort to help LBBC reach women who look to specific programs and services we provide. This year, the Fund-A-Need effort is the Cis B. Golder Quality of Life Grant. This one-time grant of up to $2,000 in value depending on need dispersed to women in the Philadelphia region has gone a long way since its establishment in 2006. The purpose of the grant is to provide relief from “invisible expenses,” such as utility and household bills, rent, co-payments, groceries, transportation, child care, wigs, prosthetics and personal care. The Golder Grant has become a lifeline and ray of hope to hundreds of women.
