Villanova, PA – Sept. 12, 2019 – On Saturday, November 16, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health, one of the nation’s oldest and largest providers of behavioral healthcare, will host its 20th annual Hope Gala at the National Constitution Center in historic Philadelphia.

Custom décor with themed accents will accentuate the spectacular backdrop of the National Constitution Center.

“Every year – thanks to the compassion and generosity of our donors, friends and supporters – we are able to help the individuals and families we serve achieve more fulfilling and rewarding lives,” said Devereux President and CEO Carl E. Clark II. “This year will be particularly impactful, as we focus on our commitment to foster independence by helping those in our care develop critical skills that will lead to greater levels of personal accomplishment, productivity and integration within their communities.” 

Devereux Pennsylvania’s 2019 Hope Gala is presented through the collaboration of the Devereux Hope Gala Committee, the Devereux Pennsylvania Advisory Board and more than 20 corporate sponsors, including presenting sponsor Independence Blue Cross. 

Individual tickets are $400. Tables, sponsorships and program advertisements are still available. Please contact Theresa Russell via email at Theresa.Russell@devereux.org for more information.
