Annual Meeting Highlights
Foundation Gala to Spin Night of Southern Romance
Psychiatric News
Volume 45 Number 4 page 9-9

Imagine sipping fine wine and sampling delicacies inspired by the local culture in a grand Southern mansion while conversing with friends and enjoying floor-to-ceiling views from a loft reached by a sweeping grand stairway. Outside the mansion you can meander in the warm evening on winding walkways and wooden bridges crossing a stream amid moss-draped oaks.

This picturesque setting is the Grand Oaks Mansion on the Mississippi River, where the American Psychiatric Foundation is hosting its annual benefit. It will be held Monday, May 24, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Most fittingly, the theme is "A Night in New Orleans."

Having an opportunity to enjoy some Southern hospitality is one reason to come to New Orleans for APA's annual meeting, but what gives the event a special meaning is that you'll be supporting the work of the foundation. Event proceeds fund the foundation's grants, programs, research awards, and awards that advance public understanding that mental illnesses are real and treatable. The evening's program also includes the presentation of the Awards for Advancing Minority Mental Health.

Please note that the day of the benefit has been changed this year—from Saturday evening to Monday evening. Tickets are $125 each until May 1; after that date, the cost is $150. Tickets may be ordered by visiting <www.psychfoundation.org> or calling (703) 907-8503.
