Norristown, PA - September 12, 2018 – Gaudenzia, Inc. held an appreciation breakfast on Tuesday, September 11 in honor of individuals who have supported the substance abuse rehabilitation organization throughout the past 50 years.
The breakfast, which was held at the Pyramid Club in the Mellon Bank Center in Philadelphia, commemorated the support, dedication and hard work of major benefactors, founders, long-time supporters as well as a select few volunteers. Honorable Judge Michael Baylson was working for then District Attorney Arlen Specter, and said, “I was charged with making sure this new group of people coming down from New York, who formed Gaudenzia, were welcomed and set up so they could begin helping the most vulnerable citizens in our city.”
This year, Gaudenzia celebrated its 50th anniversary and has continued to be the leading substance abuse rehabilitation provider throughout Pennsylvania. Throughout these five decades, Gaudenzia has been providing compassionate and quality care for both individuals and their families while helping people in their recovery from addiction.
“The loyal support and involvement throughout the years from our volunteers has been amazing,” said Lynanne Schaeffer, Community Affairs Manager. “We wanted to honor these individuals and express our gratitude for everything that they have done for Gaudenzia.”
