Event Recaps: This Just In—Casey Cares families and Jenna Communications Tour 6ABC Action News

Breaking News! The families of Casey Cares took to the studios of 6ABC Action News for a special tour. Casey Cares provides programs to support critically ill children and their families in the Mid-Atlantic area. On August 27th, families got an inside look at everything that goes into a 6ABC Actions News broadcast. Even though they specialize in current events, there’s plenty of history behind this Philadelphia station. As far back as the 1950’s, locals put on their dancing shoes to watch “Bandstand” when it premiered on 6ABC’s original station, WFIL-TV. The news powerhouse then rolled out the revolutionary “Action News” format in the 1970’s before The Walt Disney Company purchased the station, making it one of the eight top news stations in the country. Fans are bleeding Green after Last Weekend’s 39-26 Win Over the Packers…. and  Casey Cares Families helped kick off the Eagles’ season!

The afternoon of August 7 was filled with fun, family and football for Casey Cares members at the Novacare Complex. Families watched the practice and had access to the VIP tent throughout the day. The event kicked off with a high-five from each player as they entered the field, and ended with an opportunity to hang out with the team during an autograph signing session.
