The Metrocare Auxiliary, a group of 145 volunteers, will host The Meal of the Minds Luncheon, which includes the 6th annual Edible Auction featuring cakes from Dallas’ top pastry chefs. The luncheon also features a fourth annual art sale of work by Art Focus XC, an elite group of juried Dallas artists. Pete Early, bestselling author of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize finalist book Crazy: A Father’s Search Through America’s Mental Health Madness, will be the keynote speaker.
The focus of this year’s luncheon is on the services Metrocare provides for clients with mental health challenges and how appropriate community supports are required for those individuals also involved in the criminal justice system. Metrocare is North Texas’ leading nonprofit dedicated to helping people with mental illness, developmental disabilities, and severe emotional problems live healthier lives. It provides a comprehensive array of individually-tailored services to help the people they serve experience more meaningful and satisfying lives.
