The Legacy Event, Whitney Young Health’s annual fundraiser, was held on Thursday, September 19 at
Brown’s Revolution Hall
The Living The Legacy Award is given each year to individuals whose life and work resemble those of our namesake, Whitney M. Young, Jr.
This year's Living the Legacy Award honorees were Dr. Alice Green, Executive Director of the Center for Law & Justice, and Vera “Mike” Michelson (posthumously), a Founding Member of Whitney Young Health and Lifetime Activist for Racial and Social Justice. David Michelson accepted the award on his late sister Mike's behalf.
This event not only honors individuals in the community who support our mission, it also raises funds that help our patients access care they otherwise cannot afford.
Congratulations to our honorees, and thank you to our guests, sponsors and volunteers who helped to make the Legacy Event such a success - we couldn't have done it without you!
