More than 350 guests gathered at the National Constitution Center in historic Philadelphia for Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Pennsylvania’s 20th annual Hope Gala to raise critical funds for children, adolescents and adults living with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences. 

The event this fall generated nearly $200,000 to benefit the more than 3,500 individuals the organization serves in southeastern Pennsylvania.
