Palandro-Ferry Memorial Foundation

On January 2, 2019, Denny Palandro Jr., Joe Ferry, and Joe’s fiancé Kelly Wiseley were tragically involved in a car accident that took their lives. Denny and Joe, beloved members of the South Philadelphia String Band, contributed their talents and love for the Philadelphia Mummers in many ways.

The Palandro-Ferry Memorial Foundation, founded on the 3rd day of January 2019, provides monetary scholarships and goodwill among the Philadelphia Mummers Community, as well as serves as a reminder of these amazing people. Let us never forget them.

Please consider making a donation to this foundation today and help us continue the memory of these individuals we have lost. Click here for more information.
