Gala Raises Funds for NHS Human Services
Date:11/9/2008

LAFAYETTE HILL, Pa., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The NHS Human Services Foundation held its fifth annual Leading the Way Gala on November 8, 2008 at the Hyatt Regency Penn's Landing in Philadelphia. This event is one of the major fundraisers for the Foundation, which supports the mission of NHS Human Services, one of the largest providers of non profit human services in the country.

Every year the Foundation presents the Leading the Way Award to an individual or organization that shares the NHS mission and commitment to providing care and services to vulnerable populations. This year the Leading the Way award was presented to the Allegheny Valley School, headquartered in Coraopolis, PA, for 48 years of service to the intellectual and developmental disability community. This award was accepted by the former chairperson of the AVS Board and daughter of the founder of AVS, Patricia Miller Duggan and her husband, John, the former vice chair and treasurer. The Duggans has been instrumental in the continued growth and expansion of AVS and have been tireless supporters of the organization.

In addition, the Foundation also presented an award in memory of the late Fran Egan who served on the NHS Board. The Fran Egan Courage Award is presented to individuals who display courage in the face of adversity and who serve as an inspiration to others. This year the award was presented to a group of parents who formed an advocacy group on behalf of their adult children with autism. This group, Autism Living and Working (ALAW) focuses on developing housing, employment opportunities and other social services for adults with autism. They have fought for funding and programs that will support these individuals to live independently.

The guest emcee at the Gala this year was Brian Propp, former Philadelphia Flyer and local businessman who serves on the NHS Foundation Board. Michael J. Mitchell, Executive Vice President of the Graham Company in Philadelphi
