38th Annual Amicus Certus Celebration: The Art of Generosity

Saturday, October 12, 2019

Please join us as we honor Eric and Jodie Draut with the "True Friend" Award. The Drauts have demonstrated their generosity through many hours of devoted volunteer time and philanthropy to LSSI and other Lutheran organizations.

The keynote speaker is award winning television journalist Elizabeth Vargas, who wrote the book Between Breaths: A Memoir of Panic and Addiction, which details her powerful story of healing and recovery.

The evening includes dinner and dancing. Proceeds from the event benefit Behavioral Health Programs at LSSI, including Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Services.
