WILDWOOD – Cape May County’s “Women of Wonder” League joined forces to raise nearly $5,000 for Atlantic Cape Community College tuition assistance for Cape Educational COMPACT students during the second annual event Oct. 24. 

The league met in the Wildwoods, which featured a pre-Halloween superhero-themed reception, where guests were encouraged to wear costumes.

“I’ve been so inspired by the students I’ve met, their stories of courage and the daunting challenges they face. I’d like to ensure they can find the superhero inside to realize their dreams of a college education,” said Patricia Gentile, dean of Atlantic Capes continuing education, resource development and Cape May County Campus operations and WOW co-creator.

The “WOW” event was created in 2011 by Gentile, and Maria Kellett, director of major gifts, to focus attention on the ongoing education needs of at-risk students in Cape Educational COMPACT, the county’s alternative high school.
