20th Annual Freedom Awards Luncheon

On October 3, 2019, we celebrated hope, healing, and recovery at De Paul Treatment Centers’ 20th Annual Freedom Awards honoring Harry B. Wilson, Shareholder at Markowitz Herbold PC.

At this year’s luncheon, we heard about the efforts our Attorney General and US Senator are making as our partners in creating freedom from addiction. We witnessed the emotional testimony of over 100 individuals and their families as they stood and walked in solidarity to continue to win their battle every day. Lastly, we all sat spellbound as we listened to Harry Wilson’s story of taking back his freedom from the deep depths of his addiction. Harry received the Samuel C. Wheeler Freedom Award in recognition of his leadership as De Paul’s Board Chair (2015-2019) and for his work, advocacy and generosity in the community. It was truly a celebration worthy of our 20-year effort to slay the stigma of addiction.

Please consider making a gift in honor of Harry B. Wilson and his remarkable work with De Paul and the recovery community.
