Happy Days Soiree
The Dave’s House Happy Days Soiree honors the creation of permanent supportive housing for people with serious mental illness (SMI). During this autumn event, community leaders gather to celebrate the transformation and happy days that permanent supportive housing brings to our residents. It’s an evening applauding the power of the human spirit, community unity and individual perseverance.
This year, our Happy Days Soiree is on Saturday, October 7, 2017, 6 pm at Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. Please plan to join us in celebrating the power of community and the resilience of the human spirit. It will be a relaxed evening filled with friends and fabulous stories of hope.
In 2015, we honored Mayor Teresa Jacobs and retired Chief Judge Perry, two exceptional community leaders whose significant contributions have greatly improved the quality of life for people with SMI. In 2016, we paid tribute to City of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and community leader Linda Landman Gonzalez, vice president of philanthropy and multicultural insights and president, Orlando Magic Youth Foundation, for their contributions to the fight against homelessness for our most vulnerable citizens.
The evening’s program is designed in the spirit and character of Dave’s House namesake Dave Jeffreys. His fight to manage his SMI inspires us every day. His success story compels us to help others like him so they too can live their best lives possible. The event is made possible through the generous support of our Benefactors. Please join us as a 2017 Happy Days Soiree Benefactor, and support our efforts to help people in our community who desperately need our assistance.
Together, we celebrate our community and our efforts. Together, we can end the housing crisis for people with SMI.Benefactor OpportunitiesDonate Now
