Third Annual Palm Beach Chairman’s Council Dinner

Our third annual Chairman’s Council Dinner on Friday, March 10, 2017 in Palm Beach was festive and engaging.

HDRF Founder & Chair Audrey Gruss hosts the dinner every year to honor top donors who have helped the Foundation grow into a national leader in advanced depression research. This year’s dinner was on the terrace of Findlay Galleries, overlooking the elegant shops of Worth Avenue.
