Stefanie Powers Named as Celebrity Grand Marshal of Memorial Day Parade

Los Angeles, CA, May 23, 2009 --- Patricia Kennedy, founder of Step Up 4 Vets and the creator of The Peace One Earth Medallion, has been named the Veteran Organization Grand Marshal of the The 21st Annual Canoga Park Memorial Day Parade in Canoga Park, California. The Parade honors the fallen men and women of the Armed Forces from all of America’s armed conflicts, including the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Actress Stefanie Powers serves as celebrity Grand Marshal.

At the end of the parade, Ms. Kennedy will present a special Peace One Earth Medallion to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on behalf of his support of Veterans.

The event coincides with the one year anniversary of both Step Up 4 Vets and the unveiling of the Peace One Earth Medallion. “What an incredible year we’ve had. We’ve presented the Peace One Earth medallion to great American celebrities Wayne Newton, Stefanie Powers, Buzz Aldrin, Kate Linder, Hugh O’Brian, Gary Sinise, Ed Begley, Jr., Mike Vogel, Luc Robitaille and Rick Monday in recognition of their extraordinary commitment to our veterans; co sponsored the California Fitness Challenge - Road 2 Recovery five day cycling event, donated Spinning Bikes to wounded Vets; and met with countless Veterans and non-profit groups to help support our returning troops. We’re still just getting our feet wet, but I think we’ve already started to make a difference in the lives of many veterans and their families,” Ms. Kennedy said today. “We encourage people to support Step Up 4 Vets by purchasing a Peace One Earth Medallion for themselves, a loved one, or a friend as a way to express appreciation and honor our Veterans.”

A portion of the proceeds from the Peace One Earth medallions is used to support Step Up 4 Vets, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to partner in the transition of our returning veterans as they readjust, redirect and rebuild their civilian lives. Further information is available at

Patricia Kennedy established Peace One Earth as a way to express gratitude to the defenders of our freedoms while acknowledging the hope for a world at peace. Renowned for her exquisite jewelry collection, Ms. Kennedy set about creating the beautifully crafted Peace One Earth medallion to make a statement about what is really important and essential in a peaceful society and to acknowledge the service and sacrifice of those who have given so much in pursuit.

The Peace One Earth medallion, offered as both a pendant and a lapel pin, is available in 18 Karat Yellow Gold, Solid Sterling Silver, Gold-Plate and Silver-Plate. The pendant is suspended from a 22 inch red cord finished with a lobster claw clasp and the lapel pin is designed with a single post and fastener. The medallion comes in its own Peace One Earth gold-stamped suede pouch. Further information is available at
