Pat Ciarrocchi, a multiple Philadelphia Emmy Award winner for broadcasting and Gaudenzia Board member, shared about her experiences in broadcasting, the people who guided her along the way, and the powerful influence her mom had and still has on her to a sold-out audience of 140 professionals at a Tasty Talks luncheon, held at Yangming on April 24.
Pat spoke about her connection to and support of the work Gaudenzia does in helping individuals and families that have been ravaged by substance use disorder. She invited Gaudenzia graduate, Yolanda F. to share her story of recovery with the Tasty Talks audience. Yolanda’s message exemplified Pat’s message that Treatment Works.
Tasty Talks invites its speakers to select a nonprofit to receive proceeds from the luncheon. Pat chose Gaudenzia as the beneficiary. This special event allowed Gaudenzia to raise awareness about the opioid epidemic and addiction treatment, and to raise funds for Gaudenzia!
