4th Annual Spring Luncheon
Tuesday, May 15th 2018
Twenty Seven Hotaling Place, San Francisco
2018 Co-Chairs: Holly Farrell & Wilhelmina Turkovich
Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, CEO of the Center for Youth Wellness, educated a full house of community supporters at our 4th annual spring luncheon. Not a single seat was empty as members of the local philanthropic community gathered and learned more about the impact of early childhood trauma.
Dr. Burke Harris revealed her incredible insight into the devastating impact of adverse childhood experiences on the physical and emotional health of our children. Dr. Burke Harris is leading the charge of a powerful movement aimed to stop the effects of toxic stress as it is impacting the brains and bodies of our kids. Dr. Burke Harris stressed the importance of early intervention and the need for support programming, like that provided by Children of Shelters, to break the cycle of trauma and poverty for our children now and for generations to come.
Guests received a signed copy of her recently released book “The Deepest Well” which takes an in depth look at Dr. Burke Harris’ research and shares powerful stories of her time serving as a doctor to the children in the Bayview community.
Raising more than $50,000,
the luncheon was a great success!
