This well-attended event served
as both an opportunity for young professionals to learn more about Devereux’s
mission, and to learn more about the plans for the Devereux Gala to be held
November 16, 2013 at Peche at Sherman Mills. The party featured music and
entertainment by the local popular deejay, DJ Howard, delicious hors d’oeuvres
by the Zodiac restaurant and state-of-the-art TapSnap Photos. At the party,
young friends took advantage of the opportunity to purchase Gala tickets at a
special price, meet and speak with Devereux President and CEO Bob Kreider, and hear first hand from members of the Young Friends Committee how
they became inspired to become involved with Devereux.
As Devereux embarks on its second century of service, the
organization faces new challenges in its mission to inspire hope and empower
lives. This event and
future gatherings seek to cultivate the spirit and boundless energy of the next generation of emerging leaders who can garner new volunteer, advocacy and financial resources to benefit individuals with special needs.
Devereux extends its sincere appreciation to
the Gala Young Friends Sponsor, the Boudinot Foundation, Neiman Marcus, the Devereux Gala Committee and the Young Friends Committee for all
of their support in helping to make this inaugural event such a success!
