2018 Annual Celebration hits on all marks!

A sunlit setting on a beautiful sunny day … an appetizing menu … an inspiring assembly of dynamic individuals … and most of all, an outstanding featured guest.

Nineteen tables were sponsored and more than 200 guests attended. As Helen McIlvaine, 2018 PCN Award Honoree, commented, “The event was terrific from start to finish. So many very inspirational leaders and role models in the room … it was humbling to be among their midst. I thought the discussion with Soledad O’Brien was excellent, too.”

The Center would like to thank those who helped make it possible.
