Inspiring the True Spirit of the Holidays: WPA AFP Holiday Party 2015 Presents Dr. Jim Withers

Join your fundraising colleagues for what promises to be the most memorable and impactful holiday party of the season.  Celebrate with the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of AFP at the gorgeous Pittsburgh Golf Club in Squirrel Hill and meet Pittsburgh’s own Dr. Jim Withers, recently recognized as a “2015 Top 10 CNN Hero.”

Be inspired by the man who started Operation Safety Net, one of the nation’s first targeted, full-time programs providing medical care to the unsheltered homeless population.  Serving as Medical Director of the program since its inception, it has grown from a one-person project to a multi-program organization providing medical care, housing, shelters, legal aid and other vital services to the homeless of our city.  He is currently in the running for the 2015 CNN Hero of the Year award.  Learn more about Dr. Withers here: http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/07/us/cnn-heroes-homeless-doctor-jim-withers/index.html
