Hope Gala 2016
Thank you for joining Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health for our 2016 Hope Gala. We hope you felt transported to “A Night in Havana” and we are deeply grateful to all of our friends and supporters for making the evening one to remember.
Led by our presenting sponsor Independence Blue Cross, and the generosity of over 480 attendees and our wonderful sponsors, Devereux raised more than $460,000 in gross proceeds to support more than 3,500 children, adolescents and adults with special needs and their families that we serve in southeast Pennsylvania.
Our lead sponsors certainly contributed to the night’s success and we thank them for their continued support:
In addition to raising funds for Devereux’s programs in southeast Pennsylvania, the Hope Gala also raises awareness of the need and significance of the groundbreaking work Devereux is doing for extremely vulnerable populations of children and youth, and their families, in need of child welfare supports or even acute psychiatric services.
Devereux can continue to be an agent of change for individuals with emotional, behavioral and intellectual challenges here in the greater Philadelphia area and beyond. The complex challenges facing adults with autism, youth in foster care, and the growing population of victims of child sexual exploitation must be addressed by innovative, cutting-edge therapies. Thanks to the support of our donors like you, Devereux has the leadership, resources and passion to continue meeting the needs of some of the most vulnerable youth and adults in our communities.
Your support does not have to end there, however. Please help us tell these stories by following Devereux on Facebook (@Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Pennsylvania) and sharing our mission with your network. Public funding is not rising to meet the complex needs of the individuals in our care. Devereux can and will respond to everyone we serve with innovative, compassionate care – but can only do so with the investment of passion, leadership and resources from the community.
Thank you once again for your support of the individuals we serve. We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 Hope Gala at The Fillmore on Saturday, November 11, 2017.
