Tribute to Marciene

ASAP founder and board chair Marciene Mattleman speaks at the event held in her honor. Featured guests from left to right are School District Superintendent Dr. William Hite, former U.S. Ambassador Joe Torsella,  Mayor Wilson Goode, Mayor Michael Nutter. Speaker Governor Ed Rendell not pictured. 

In May 2015, Mayor Nutter and ASAP joined forces with Mayor Wilson Goode, Governor Ed Rendell, and former U.S. Ambassador Joe Torsella for a special tribute to ASAP’s founder and tireless advocate for children, Marciene Mattleman, as she prepared to step down as ASAP’s board chair. In front of a crowd of more than 100 family, friends, and colleagues, these dignitaries celebrated Marciene’s legacy perhaps best described by Mayor Goode: "one of the most unselfish, dedicated public servants" in the history of Philadelphia.

The tribute also served as the formal announcement of the Marciene Mattleman Founder’s Fund, ASAP’s effort to honor Marciene’s legacy by building a fund to support safe and enriching after school programs for young people throughout the city. Since 2002, ASAP has served more than 75,000 Philadelphia youth.
