On Thursday, October 6, 2016 Gaudenzia, a drug and alcohol treatment program for men and women in the Philadelphia area, held their 2016 Gaudenzia/Gustave G. Amsterdam Community Champion Award Dinner at the Crystal Tea Room. This year's recipients were The Decker Family, Tad, Candy, and Samantha from Gladwyne, Pa; while their individual contributions to the community at large are extensive and impressive, their commitment to serving the greater good was evident when they decided to publicly expose the tragic loss of their son and brother, John Decker, to addiction in his obituary in January 2016. Many friends, family, and community leaders attended the event to support the Decker family. Honorary Co-Chairs of the event included Edward G. Rendell.
