The Arthritis Foundation Will Honor Brittany Alba at April 2014 Event

Dunleavy and Associates is pleased to announce that the Arthritis Foundation will honor one of our project associates, Brittany Alba, who was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis in 1990. Along with Brittany, Charlotte McKines, Vice President of Global Marketing Communications & Channel Strategies at Merck, will also be recognized as a “Woman on the Move.” These two exemplary women will be honored at the annual “Women on the Move” luncheon at 11:30am on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at the Arts Ballroom, 1324 Locust Street, Philadelphia, PA. A Woman on the Move is an extraordinary woman who balances family life, career and community involvement. They are "on the move" professionally, personally, and philanthropically.

This year, the Arthritis Foundation will also honor Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children with its Medical Practice Award.

The organization Women on the Move creates awareness about women with arthritis and the tools available through the Arthritis Foundation to help cope with and prevent the disease, while leading fulfilling and active lives.

A bright, passionate, highly engaging professional, Brittany Alba personifies the attributes of “women on the move.” A talented relationship-builder and energetic volunteer, Brittany served as President of the class of 2006 at Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School. Her educational journey took her south of the Mason Dixon line to Washington D.C. where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media Studies from the Catholic University of America. Those studies included a semester abroad in England when she realized that in addition to being educational, travel was energizing. At the age of 25 she has visited 10 countries, with many more on her “bucket list.” Professionally, Brittany brings her skills, talent and compassion to the work of helping nonprofit organizations sustain their missions. She is a valued member of the team of Dunleavy & Associates where her enthusiasm for helping others is not only effective, but contagious!

“Women on the Move” includes a fashion reception and auction, luncheon catered by STARR Events and awards ceremony. Sponsorship opportunities and tickets are available. Dunleavy proudly sponsors this event. To read Brittany’s personal reflection on her journey or for more information about this event, please visit
