What’s Happening in Philly

Wednesdays For Women

Beginning Sept. 7, Khyber Pass Pub is proud to feature “Wednesdays For Women” during September’s Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month. Every Wednesday in September, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Khyber Pass Pub will donate a percentage of food sales to Up The Volume Foundation’s continuing efforts in the fight against women’s cancers. Approximately 77,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with gynecologic cancer every year. With the help of our friends, Khyber Pass Pub hopes to eradicate this number by supporting organizations like Up The Volume Foundation, raising awareness and funding research to cure ovarian, uterine, and cervical cancers.

Every Wednesday in Sept., 6-10 p.m.
