Nearly 300 guests were transported to the enchanting City of Light – Paris, France – for Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Pennsylvania’s “Evening of Hope – C'est la fête” event to raise critical funds for children, adolescents and adults with emotional behavioral and cognitive differences.

The Parisian-themed event at the historic Normandy Farm in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, generated nearly $300,000 to benefit the individuals Devereux serves in southeastern Pennsylvania.

“We want to thank our donors, friends and supporters for their kindness and generosity, and for helping to make this year’s ‘Evening of Hope’ truly special,” said Devereux President and CEO Carl E. Clark II. “The theme for the event, ‘C'est la fête,’ means ‘It’s a party’ in French – and that it was – as we celebrated the youth and adults we serve and their remarkable achievements. Thanks to the steadfast commitment and support of our community partners, we are able to continue to make a meaningful difference in the lives of so many individuals and families.”
