Thank you to all of the 2017 Gala Sponsors and Participants
We are excited to share with you the enormous success of the Spring Gala. The 2017 Spring Gala is one of the TOP 3 most successful galas’ in the 17 year history of the event. We had record-breaking participation this year with 348 participants, which resulted in us exceeding our goal of $100,000!
The mission of Wesley Spectrum is to provide transformational support for children and families as they strive to become more independent, responsible and caring members of the community. For over 50 years Wesley has provided a diverse range of education, autism, behavioral health and family support services to children and families throughout western Pennsylvania.
During the event, we looked at the building blocks Wesley Spectrum provides to kids and families. We heard stories of how each small block can make a difference. Together, through your generosity and support, we can continue building on this foundation for a brighter future. The theme enforced the dedication of how Wesley’s staff works with the families to build a strong foundation for which the child or family can build from, while providing the right care, in the right way at the right time, child by child, family by family.
With your support and generosity the proceeds from the gala will fund the new Brown Family Activity and Resource Center in our Wilkinsburg Office, in honor of Danny Brown, our honoree and his family.
Other items include:
- a new van to transport kids and families
- staff engagement funds to be used to show appreciation for our dedicated employees, and
- funds for our free care program for families that need financial assistance to receive services at the new Wesley CARES program. https://www.wesleyspectrum.org/cares-program/
