Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Pennsylvania to host its ‘Evening of Hope – C'est la f?te’ event on Nov. 11

More than 300 supporters expected at the Parisian-themed event to raise critical funds for local individuals with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences.

Villanova, PA – Sept. 26, 2023 – On Saturday, Nov. 11, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Pennsylvania will host its ”Evening of Hope – C'est la f?te“ at the historic Normandy Farm in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. The Parisian-themed event will raise critical funds for children, adolescents and adults with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences.

Each year, Devereux’s highly anticipated fall event generates hundreds of thousands of dollars to support the individuals Devereux serves in southeastern Pennsylvania. This year’s event, which is expected to draw more than 300 guests, will feature specially crafted food and drinks prepared by Normandy Farm, which was renamed as such in 1913 by then-owner Ralph Strassburger who was inspired by his honeymoon trip to Normandy, France. The event also will include live music, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences and other extravagant items offered via live and silent auctions. The stylish and elegant d?cor is designed to transport attendees to the enchanting City of Light – Paris, France.

”This event provides a special opportunity to thank our incredible community partners, whose steadfast support helps us continue to provide the highest quality programs and services,“ said Devereux President and CEO Carl E. Clark II. “This year’s theme, ‘C'est la f?te,’ which means ‘It’s a party’ in French, celebrates the vast and varied accomplishments of the youth and adults we are privileged to serve. Our ultimate goal is to help these individuals lead happy, fulfilling and empowered lives. The kindness and generosity of our donors, friends and supporters is critical to achieving that goal every year.”

Individual tickets are $250 and VIP tickets – allowing one individual served by Devereux Pennsylvania to participate in the Special Olympics – are $300. Tables, sponsorships and program advertisements are still available. Please contact Melissa Trexler via email at Melissa.Trexler@devereux.org for more information.
