Third District State Senator Shirley Kitchen hosted a Valentine’s Day luncheon for 125 community seniors on February 14 at PPh.  The event was co-sponsored by NewCourtland, Bravo Health, and The Philadelphia Protestant Home.

Over a light lunch, Senator Kitchen addressed the attendees, highlighting her senatorial office’s services and sharing updates about legislative issues.  Jacqueline Jefferson from the Center for Advocacy for the Rights and Interests of the Elderly (C.A.R.I.E.) spoke about Medicaid fraud and its prevention.

The highlight of the event was the song stylings of Siddiq Williams, who did a spot-on tribute to Barry White and serenaded the audience with soulful love songs.
