Rogers Foundation to host 18th annual Women’s Gathering on May 1704/20/22 05:15:pm
Rogers Behavioral Health Foundation will host its annual Women’s Gathering luncheon and fundraising event on Tuesday, May 17 at the Wisconsin Club in downtown Milwaukee.
“Spread the word to friends and family members,” says Stacey Basile, development and marketing manager of the Foundation. “And invite them to join us as we focus on this year’s presentation on ‘Self-awareness: Reenergize your mental and spiritual health in the new normal.’”
The program will feature Rachel Leonard, PhD, executive director of clinical strategy, who will offer tips on achieving mental health and wellness. Following Dr. Leonard, former patient Marissa will share her mental and spiritual journey of self-discovery through OCD and depression and the techniques she uses today to stay true to her body, mind, and soul.
Upon arrival, guests may browse wellness and beauty items from specially selected local and national vendors. One of the pop-up shops, Kendra Scott, will showcase the Elisa necklace in gold and peridot. Selected as the signature piece for the event, it celebrates lime green as the official color of mental health and awareness.
The Foundation will receive 20% of the proceeds from all purchases of Kendra Scott jewelry made between May 17-18. In addition to the Women’s Gathering, the jewelry is available online or at the Brookfield, Wisconsin, store location. Use code: GIVEBACK-BSPMB. View more purchasing details here.
All proceeds from the Women’s Gathering benefit Rogers’ Spiritual Care Program. Funded 100% by grateful donors, the Women’s Gathering is the primary fundraising event for spiritual care every year, supplying critical resources to ensure patients in need have access to this aspect of support.
Christine Dawley, Spiritual Care manager, will tell guests more about how spirituality can be a valuable component to the recovery process for individuals who request its services.
“After a two-year hiatus, the Foundation is thrilled to be back in person for this annual event,” Stacey says.
