Rashid, President and CEO, The AmeriHealth Mercy Family of Companies; and Daniel L. Woodall, Jr., President , Philadelphia Laborers’ District Council & Business Manager – Local 135


The dinner recognized exceptional fathers who have demonstrated the ability to balance their personal lives and successful careers with the demands of being an exemplary role model for their children.


The proceeds of the evening will benefit the American Diabetes Association’s mission to prevent and cure diabetes, and to improve the lives of the nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States who have diabetes.
