Dear Friends of 180,
Oh, what a night! And what a tremendous tribute to our mission! We were so happy to have enjoyed the support of nearly 300 guests who were in attendance! Music, dress and theme were on point, and so was the fundraising with over $270,000+ raised. Special thanks to our generous sponsors who are listed with great admiration and appreciation below.
Heartfelt thanks to event honorees Mary Ansell, Bob Fouratt and Gary McGeddy who are all pictured here in true 70’s fashion! The impressive way their teams, colleagues, friends and family came out to support 180 in honor of their belief in our mission, made this event truly unforgettable. We are forever grateful for these special friends of 180: Mary, Bob and Gary have all given immeasurable gifts to support our mission.
Special thanks to our Event Sponsors below and very special thanks to our Live Auction Donors who helped us raise over $36,000 with their most generous donations! We had so much fun auctioning off these 70’s inspired packages!
A highlight of the evening was having Founding 180 Mothers, Susan Preston and Janice Miller in attendance. While they hadn’t seen each other in decades; the moment they reconnected and shared a hug was so very special. All their years, and all their tears; their triumphs…and all that 180 is today was in that hug. Thank you Susan and Janice and to all 180 Founding Mothers. Please take a moment to view our event video which features Janice and her reflections on 180’s early founding days as well as recent client-survivor Amanda, who is featured and relays how her recent stay at 180’s Safe House transformed her life.

We are looking forward to the next opportunity to see you all again! In the meantime, please accept our most sincere thanks for supporting 180 and for your belief in our mission which enables us to save and change lives every day.
On behalf of the 180 Board of Trustees & with our sincere thanks and appreciation,
Anna Diaz White
