FI’s Annual Gala 2019 Honoring Allison Janney and Hanley Foundation: A Smash Success

All of us at Freedom Institute send heartfelt thanks to those of you who attended this year’s annual gala or supported from afar with generous donations. Your dedication to the work we do is so appreciated. The event was a great success, and as usual informative, moving, inspiring and full of laughs — “humor…the ONLY way to get through life’s challenges,” as Allison Janney, one of the evening’s honorees, said.

Our theme this year was Families Recover Here, and nearly 300 of Freedom Institute’s friends and supporters gathered at the Mandarin Oriental on May 13th to celebrate the family systems work that has been the core of our mission for more than 43 years. Hosted by NBC News anchor and senior national correspondent Kate Snow, the gala honored Academy and Emmy award-winning actress Allison Janney and Hanley Foundation.
