The cost is $35 per person or $60 per couple (with pre-registration, $40 per person and $75 per couple at the door) and includes a full dinner buffet, beer and dancing from 7:00 to11:00 p.m. and a cash bar.

The Tulli Fund honors the memory of Jill Marie Tulli who died of breast cancer at the age of 31.

Fox Chase physicians are also routinely recognized in national rankings, and the Center’s nursing program has received the Magnet recognition for excellence four consecutive times.
