On May 10, 2019, we gathered at the National Building Museum in D.C. for an incredible night to celebrate 100 Years of Service and honor five inspiring leaders and advocates who embody Easterseals' mission of making profound and positive differences to people's lives every day:
Marjorie Morrison, President, CEO, and Co-Founder of Psych Hub, an online platform with engaging videos about mental health, substance abuse and suicide prevention; General David Goldfein, the 21st Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force and Dawn Goldfein, who have been champions for military families for more than three decades; and Joseph Martore, CEO of CALIBRE Systems Inc. and Gracia Martore, retired President and CEO of TEGNA Inc. They have been supporting Easterseals programs for children and families for close to a decade.
Here are some of the highlights of this truly memorable evening of fun, networking, and celebration: powerful videos of clients who shared how Easterseals supported their families and moving testimonies from our honorees.

By the end of the night, Easterseals had even more to celebrate. Thanks to our sponsors, donors, and participants in our silent auction, we raised more than $850,000 to support Easterseals vital programs that serve our community. The night would not have been a success without you.
Now if you missed your chance to attend our Advocacy Awards, don't worry, as the opportunity to get involved or make a gift is ongoing. We also hope to see you next year at our 2020 Advocacy Awards.
