Thank you to all who joined us to celebrate another year of Family Focus and to honor or 2017 Bernice Weissbourd Award for Family Support recipients. We could not be more grateful to those who attended, hosted friends, provided silent auction items, and volunteered to help make this year the best gala yet.
Special thanks to Eric Smith, our Event Chair, Uzma Mirza, our participant speaker, and the gala committee and sponsors who made this event possible. To read Ms. Mirza's remarks on how Family Focus has impacted her community, and how she continues to help others through Family Focus, click here.
We'd also like to thank our awardees, the Kiphart family and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.
The Kiphart family have been ambassadors and supporters of Family Focus for over 15 years. Sadly we lost Dick Kiphart last year, but we are honored to celebrate his life and the family's dedication to philanthropy.
The Robert R. McCormick Foundation has invested over $1 million in Family Focus over the years. Their contributions have made a critical difference in Family Focus' early childhood development programs, fatherhood programs, and adult literacy. We were so happy to present this award to President and CEO, David Hiller.
