Gala Information

The Devereux Gala, an annual tradition honoring the remarkable legacy of Helena Devereux, will welcome friends and family November 16, 2013, to celebrate the beginning of Devereux’s second century of service. Like its first 100 years, Devereux’s second century promises to bring exciting changes and new opportunities for the individuals and families we serve. We hope you will join us for this celebration of continued hope and commitment to Devereux’s future.

This year’s Gala, Lighting the Way to the Future, symbolizes Devereux’s continued strength as a leader and innovator in behavioral health care. A beacon of hope for tens of thousands of people across a century, today Devereux remains committed to individuals with special needs while reaching outward, and impacting society as a whole.
