Solutions for Today and Tomorrow
On June 8, 2016 HSU celebrated our 20th Anniversary at our
annual gala event. We were joined by over 200 members and supporters to
honor Sean Delany of the Lawyers Alliance of New York, Christine Quinn,
current CEO of Win and former New York City Council Speaker to present
our own Christy Parque, former HSU Executive Director and current CEO of
the Coalition of Behavioral Health Agencies with the inaugural Barbara
Lenniger Legacy Award. Special guests included Public Advocate Letitia
James, Maryanne Schretzman from the Office of the Mayor and City Council
Member and General Welfare Committee Chair Stephen Levin who presented
Ms. Parque with a special proclamation in honor of her many years of
service to HSU.
The event raised a record breaking $115,000 thanks to the work of our
dedicated Board of Directors including, Events Committee Chair and Board
Member Steve Rockman and dedicated HSU staff, Program Director Eric Lee
and Interim Executive Director Joan Montbach.
