Hope for Depression Research Foundation Hosts

Third Annual Palm Beach Chairman’s Council Dinner

 

Hope for Depression Research Foundation (HDRF) held its third annual Chairman’s Council Dinner on Friday, March 10, 2017 at FINDLAY Galleries on Worth Avenue.

 

Hosted by HDRF Founder & Chair Audrey Gruss, the dinner honored top donors who have helped the Foundation grow into a national leader in advanced depression research. The dinner was co-hosted and underwritten by James R. Borynack, Chairman and CEO of Findlay Galleries, and Adolfo Zaralegui, Vice President of Findlay Galleries. Chairman’s Council Co-Chairs William Flaherty, Susan Lloyd and Scott Snyder rounded out the leadership of the event.

 

The evening’s program included renowned psychologist and neuroscientist Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett, who gave a fascinating talk on “How to Become a ‘Superager.’” After dinner, guests received a signed copy of her new book How Emotions Are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain, which was released on March 7th by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

 

Dr. Huda Akil, Chair of the HDRF Depression Task Force – a unique collaboration of top researchers from across the U.S. and Canada –  gave a brief update of the DTF’s research advances.

 

The guests enjoyed a stunning setting for dinner on the Gallery’s open air terrace.  HDRF’s signature color was evident in the yellow forsythia intertwined in the chandeliers and floating over the tables, which were set with yellow tulips. The menu featured a Maine lobster with crabmeat salad, followed by lamb chops or Scottish salmon, and ending with a dessert of lavender profiterole.  

 

Chairman’s Council members in attendance included:  Jane and George Bunn, Janet and J.J. Cafaro, Denis and Annabelle Coleman, Mary and Marvin Davidson, Barbara and Randall Smith, Nancy and Bill Schaffel, Martin Gruss, Bruce Bierman and Myrna Haft.   

 

 

ABOUT HOPE FOR DEPRESSION RESEARCH FOUNDATION

 

The mission of the Hope for Depression Research Foundation (HDRF) is to fund cutting-edge, neuroscience research into the origins, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of depression and other mood disorders – bipolar disorder, postpartum depression, post-traumatic stress syndrome, anxiety disorder and suicide. It was founded in 2006 by Palm Beach resident Audrey Gruss in memory of her mother Hope, who struggled with depression for decades. Over a decade after its founding, HDRF has become the leading non-profit dedicated solely to advanced depression research. Its impact includes over 100 major research grants in 12 countries, 18 U.S. cities and 48 major universities such as Harvard and Rockefeller University.

 

The HDRF Chairman’s Council is designed to provide its members with unique opportunities to learn about mind-brain health issues and the latest developments in brain research. Benefits include access to HDRF’s world-renowned psychiatrists and neuroscientists, invitations to attend the annual Board meeting, and VIP dinners with the prominent members of the HDRF Arts Committee.  FINDLAY Galleries underwrote this third annual dinner.
