Summer is a great time of year, typically filled with family vacations, outdoor activities and of course, a break from school.

The annual Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Hope Gala is one of Philadelphia’s most premiere black-tie events, raising hundreds of thousands annually to benefit more than 3,500 children and adults with emotional, behavioral, and cognitive differences served by Devereux in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
