Portland, OR. Due to the health impacts from COVID-19 (coronavirus) in our community, and in line with Governor Kate Brown’s direction on large gatherings, Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare’s Culture of Caring Gala, which was scheduled for April 2nd, has been POSTPONED. Cascadia has rescheduled the Gala for Thursday, October 8th. (At the 2018 gala, John Washington, Cupid Alexander, Christina Hawkins posed for the photo above.)

Cascadia is working in cooperation with Multnomah County and the Oregon Health Authority, as well as following CDC (Centers for Disease Control & Prevention) and WHO (World Health Organization) guidelines. Organizational leaders say they take this outbreak very seriously and released the following statement:

“While we are disappointed to be losing the opportunity to come together, putting the health of our community first is critical at this time. We hope that by pushing the event back, our community will be able to stay healthy and then come back together for an impactful night of rising together in support of whole health care.

We appreciate your continued partnership and support of Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare. We will keep you updated with next steps. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact [email protected].”

Last year, Lisa Oyler, Chiki Nussbaumer, Gayathrai Ramprasad, Toc Soneoulay-Gillespie and Tamara Pedrojetti were among the hundreds who enjoyed the night.
