Benefit for the Brain 2017
On November 8th 2017, NAMI of PA Montgomery County will be hosting our 6th annual Benefit for the Brain event at the Philadelphia Marriott West in West Conshohocken, PA. The purpose of this fundraiser is to highlight the need for both medical and non-medical research and services for mental illness. The evening will begin at 6pm with an open cocktail hour, live music, silent auction, followed by a sit down dinner with the presentation of two awards: The Scientific Research Award and The Impact Award.
Our 2017 Benefit for the Brain Committee is pleased to announce that Dr. Irene Hurford and the P.E.A.C.E. Program have been selected as this year’s Impact Award Recipient and Dr. Christian Kohler will receive the Scientific Research Award. Congratulations to the 6th Annual Benefit for the Brain Awardees!
