Newtown City Lifestyle 2nd Annual Holiday Party

Community Event Proceeds Benefited A Love For Life Nonprofit For Pancreatic Cancer Research

At the 2022 Newtown City Lifestyle holiday party, $4,400 was raised for local nonprofit A Love For Life, which gathers funds for pancreatic cancer research. 

Christine Edmonds founded the nonprofit after her husband, Kevin Edmonds, died at the age of 51 years on April 10, 2012, after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Kevin's sister, Nora, died in 2009 from the same disease.

"As a nonprofit, we're very grateful for the publicity and exposure that our local Newtown Lifestyle magazine has provided over these last two years. Dana and her crew have shared our story and our mission in a feature article and in lots of event promotions and postings, both in the magazine and on their social media," says Christine.

She says she met many new people at the annual party, and had a hugely successful raffle, thanks to two dozen local businesses. "We've raised over a million dollars over the years, and are thankful to our incredibly supportive community partners, with 100% of the funds going to pancreatic cancer researchers at Penn."

Donations for raffle baskets and other party support came from the following businesses:  McCaffrey’s Markets; Michael's Jewelers; Newtown Dentistry; Playa Bowls; Piccolo Trattoria; Bomba Taco; The Kusler Team; The Well Lounge; La La Lobster; Barre3; The Newtown Pro Shop; NothingBundt Cakes; Legacy Realty; Bucks County Balloons; 4Ever Young Anti-Aging Solutions; Bike Works; LaStalla; William Jean Salon; The Dave Marcolla Group; Norganized; United Veterans Roofing; and The Temperance House.
