50th Anniversary Celebration

Gloria Bernard, SMH Board President (l) and Patrick Evans, SMH CEO (incoming)

A great time was had by one and all at the 11th annual Mental Health Matters celebration on May 12, 2016, which was also our 50th Anniversary!

Seven hundred friends, staff, board members, community leaders, elected officials and more attended the event to pay tribute to retiring CEO, David Stone, who delivered a rousing and inspired keynote address. New CEO, Patrick Evans, who arrives June 13, offered a thoughtful speech that left everyone excited about the future of SMH.

Special thanks goes out to all of our sponsors, who helped to make this one of our most successful events ever: CBRE, Northwest Motor Sports, Puget Sound Business Journal, Enterprise Holdings, Heritage Bank, Keeney’s Office Supply, KUOW, Netsmart, Seattle Met Magazine, US Bank, Linn, Schisel & DeMarco, PS, Perkins Coie, A&A printing, Inc., Boeing, Clark Nuber, PS, Genoa Healthcare, Premera, Jackson Main, Martyn Family Foundation, the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, Parker, Smith & Feek, ThinkAlike and Union Bank.
