Perkins believes in building brighter futures for children and adults with mental health challenges and developmental disabilities. Help us offer opportunities for bright futures by attending our inaugural Evening Under the Stars Gala. Special Guest: Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Ron Suskind.
A delicious station based meal will tempt your palate as you mingle among friends and co-workers. As dinner hour begins to wind down, we will gather to listen to Mr. Suskind speak about his life as the dad of an autistic son. He will reference his book, Life Animated, and speak freely about the journey he and his wife embarked upon when they realized their son was different. His talk will inspire and entertain you, and you will leave with a new appreciation for the words love and commitment.
