Risa Vetri Ferman Named L’Oreal “Woman of Worth”
Likely already Philly’s most decorated family, the Vetris have another award to pin on the fridge. While her brother, chef Marc Vetri, has his own share of accolades, Montco D.A. Risa Vetri Ferman was just named “L’Oreal Paris’ 2012 Woman of Worth.” Ferman scored 70,000 online votes in a “contest” with nine other do-gooder women. With the honor comes $25,000 for her nonprofit Mission Kids, which helps victims of child abuse in Montco.
“I am deeply honored to be selected as a L’Oreal Paris Woman of Worth,” said Ferman. “This generous award will help Mission Kids protect and support children who have been abused. Just as importantly, I hope this national award will open a community dialogue about the reality of child abuse and the ways all of us can be involved in keeping kids safe in our own communities. It is truly a privilege to be among the company of these 10 amazing women.” [Main Line Media News]
