The Phil­adelphia Chil­dren’s Al­li­ance re­cog­nized three North­east res­id­ents dur­ing PCA’s an­nu­al Bear Af­fair fun­draiser on May 1 at The Crys­tal Tea Room in Cen­ter City.

Po­lice Capt. John Darby of the Spe­cial Vic­tims Unit, Po­lice De­tect­ive Thomas Price of the Child Ab­use Unit and Amy Sch­euer of the De­part­ment of Hu­man Ser­vices’ Sex Ab­use In­vest­ig­a­tions Unit were each named as re­cip­i­ents of the 2014 Team Ex­cel­lence Award. John Kennedy Deal­er­ships, Qlik Tech­no­lo­gies and Aon sponsored the awards, which are presen­ted each year to PCA’s most ded­ic­ated team mem­bers.

The an­nu­al Bear Af­fair has raised $169,000 to sup­port PCA and the work it does for the city’s child sexu­al ab­use vic­tims. More than 500 at­tendees each brought a Teddy bear to the event so that every child who walks through the door at PCA can be giv­en a bear that they can take home. ••
