Time & Place

1 - 4 p.m.
Urban Saloon, 2120 Fairmount Ave, Philadelphia

The goal of Jessie's Day is to provide survivors of pediatric organ transplants the resources they need to go to college.

Image of Jessies's Day 2014 revised


In the past 11 years, the Jessica Beth Schwartz Scholarship Fund has given more than $90,000 in college scholarship money to 39 college-bound transplant recipients. This year's event will help even more students who have had organ transplants fulfill their dreams of attending college.

Jessica Beth Schwartz was a heart transplant recipient and Temple journalism student. Her dedication to earning her degree was cut short when at the age of 23, she passed away. In her memory, the Jessica Beth Schwartz Memorial Scholarship Fund was started to award young transplant recipients the opportunity to pursue their dreams of a higher education. All proceeds from Jessie's Day Give the Gift of Scholarship Event support this scholarship.
