Food for Thought Luncheon

A Luncheon in Celebration of Mental Health Awareness Month

 

Guest Speaker: Shannon Heffernan, WBEZ

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we kicked it off in style at YFC's 3rd Annual Food For Thought Luncheon, held May 4, 2017  at the elegant Knollwood Club in Lake Forest. Guests were inspired by the message of our keynote speaker, Shannon Heffernan, a reporter for WBEZ radio, and moved by the heartwarming stories of YFC’s retiring Clinical Director Jim Shackelford.

Many thanks to our friends who attended this event, and to those who could not attend but donated generously to our agency. Special thanks to our 2017 Sponsors, including:
