David Lawrence Center is pleased to present our Celebration Reception. We will honor three local individuals or businesses who support David Lawrence Center’s mission of restoring and rebuilding lives by providing compassionate, advanced, and exceptional mental health, substance abuse, and integrated healthcare solutions, available to all and we will celebrate DLC supporters, sponsors, and donors from the past year.
Stand-Up Award: Lavern Gaynor
Lavern Gaynor is being honored for her passion to bring awareness to adolescent mental health, in particular for her support of DLC’s efforts to provide early identification of at-risk children and community collaborations that increase access to services.
Partner of the Year: Cummings & Lockwood, LLC
Cummings & Lockwood has been a steadfast supporter of David Lawrence Center for over 13 years. Through their partnership, they’ve helped further the conversation on the importance of mental health and substance use services in our community. In addition to their financial contributions to a variety of DLC fundraisers, they allow their expert staff to serve in leadership capacities on the Center’s various boards and committees.
Advocate of the Year: Honorable Janeice Martin
Judge Martin is being honored for her role in advocating for the needs of those struggling with mental health and addiction who have faced legal challenges as a result of their illness. For the last six years, she has served as the Circuit Court Judge presiding over Collier County’s Adult Treatment Courts, which includes: Drug Court, Mental Health Court, and Veterans Treatment Court. In this capacity, she works tireless with DLC on a daily basis to help those struggling get access to the treatment and support they need to live a healthy, happy, and crime-free life.
Registration is required for this cocktail reception, but it is free to attend as a way to thank our donors, advocates, and friends for their continued support throughout the year.
