Corporate Breakfast Raises $107,000, Offers Message of Love of Humanity

Edgewood’s third annual Corporate Breakfast raised $107,000 through sponsorships and contributions from corporations and individuals in support of the 11,000 children and families that we serve each year.

The Greek definition of philanthropy is ‘love of humanity’.  Our guest speaker Thomas Kurian spoke to philanthropy when he shared his story of his mother feeding hungry children in the town in which he grew up.  Jena Corda, the mother of a former client explained that “Edgewood has been nothing short of a miracle.” She shared the moving story of the enormous struggles their family faced when their daughter’s challenges required them to suddenly navigate the mental health care system. It was not until they discovered Edgewood that their daughter received the care she needed and was able to return home, and the whole family was able to heal.

In a forward looking message of how Edgewood can forge a positive future that addresses the changing needs of our community, CEO Lynn Dolce shared that “if you are at all interested in innovation, I invite you to be a thought partner with me and my team. The future is right now.”

Edgewood is especially appreciative of our sponsors of this year’s Corporate Breakfast:
