Ersilia Cataldo Matarazzo

Kiwanis Club 5K Walk for Ersilia on Sept. 28 at Glendale Park

Our aim is to raise awareness about the problem of domestic violence and the severe destruction it produces, especially for women and families. All proceeds from the Walk will be given directly to the Ersilia Cataldo Matarazzo Memorial Fund by Everett Kiwanis, a 501(c)(3) public charity.
