Culture of Caring Gala

October 14, 2021
Presented by the Heatherington Foundation for Innovation and Education in Health Care, Cascadia’s Culture of Caring Gala is a celebration of our work in the community, highlighting the impacts of community support for individuals experiencing mental health challenges, addiction disorders, poverty, trauma, and homelessness.

This event brings together corporate partners and sponsors, individual donors, community members, nonprofit organizations, staff, and patients to share in the work and mission of Cascadia that is needed now more than ever. Cascadia’s Culture of Caring Gala has grown to a gathering of more than 400 attendees, providing your company/organization with vast exposure and visibility in the community.

Join us as we celebrate and support our whole community by providing access to whole health care services – mental health care, addiction recovery, primary care, wellness programs, and housing – to support more than 18,000 individuals of all ages each year. All funds raised are critical to Cascadia being able to meet the increased need for community support and whole health care.
