Our best benefit event ever!
Thanks to all who made it a wonderful and interesting evening
 
Rita Sussman, shown with Institute President Erika Schmidt and Board of Trustees Chairman Robert Graham,
accepted the Human Spirit Award in memory of Arthur M. Sussman, her late husband and our former board chair
 
Host committee members Eleanor Coe and Jean K. Carney and friends
were among more than 300 attendees at the Standard Club May 10
 
    
We surpassed our fundraising goal to support the educational, patient, and other programs of the Institute, and had a wonderful time
