Pathway To Hope – Donor Appreciation Event, “A Taste Of Wellness”

Pathway To Hope’s annual Donor Appreciation Event, “A Taste Of Wellness,” was held on August 14th at Somerset Ridge Vineyard and Winery. Pathway To Hope was founded in 1988 by Sharon and Dick Lawrenz, who struggled with a mental health diagnosis of a family member. The organization is committed to encourage, empower, and educate individuals and families whose lives have been turned upside down from dealing with a broad spectrum of mental illness.

Donors and board members enjoyed the lovely event.
