Miss New Jersey Raises Awareness at Benway


In her final public appearance as Miss New Jersey USA 2016, Jessielyn Palumbo joined Susan G. Komen North Jersey to visit the Benway School on Thursday October 6, 2016 to promote Breast Cancer Awareness.

Miss Palumbo and Gina Fernicola, Director of Development for Susan G. Komen North Jersey, gave a presentation to the student body that expressed the need for fundraising for breast cancer, how donated money is used, statistics for people at risk for breast cancer, and how to be screened for the disease.

Benway followed the presentation with a Breast Cancer Walk to kickoff the school’s fundraising campaign “Benway Battles Breast Cancer”. The Benway community donated money, crafted signs, and wore pink in support of the cause as they took their walk around the campus. The Benway School will have another walk on Friday October 21, as well as numerous other fundraising events throughout the month.
