October 20, 2020 marks the 65th anniversary of Penn Foundation’s first patient visit by Dr. Norman Loux. Join us live from WFMZ’s studios for a memorable event to honor our rich history, thank our caring community of donors, raise awareness of the mental health and addiction treatment services we offer our community, and raise much-needed support to ensure our bright future.

Give HOPE and make an impact in the lives of those we serve.
