October Letter from the CEO
Dear Friends of KYC,
Although the weather may not feel like fall quite yet, I’m looking forward to the days when cool breezes and autumn colors transform the world around us. That transformation reminds all of us of the constant change in our lives and the ability we have to create change for others. It’s empowering and humbling. It’s exciting and also a bit scary. (But October is also a time for all things spooky, right?) We all face change constantly and we depend on the support of friends, family, and organizations like KYC to navigate that change successfully. I’m so proud to know that the work being done by our clinicians, social workers, and teams provide a safety net for all people in our community to manage and thrive in the transformations of our lives, both big and small.
There are many exciting events coming up in the next few weeks. Our Volunteer Dinner is an annual celebration of the men and women who generously give of their time to ensure the continuation of our mission and programs. We hope you can join us on October 17th at the Belvedere to honor their support.
In keeping with the transformation theme of this message, the 29th Annual Fashion Show “Imagine the Possibilities” will be hosted on November 4th at The Seville. This event offers a unique opportunity for over 400 guests to gather in support of KYC and help us raise awareness and financial contributions for our organization. It’s a beautiful day filled with fashion and fun. Join us.
As we transition and transform from summer to fall, I hope each of you finds the opportunity to embrace and create change for someone else. Whether supporting KYC by attending one of our events, becoming a volunteer, or simply taking a little extra time to support a friend in need, our community continues to thrive because of kind friends like you.
Susan E. Cowen
President and Chief Executive Officer
