Our Clubhouse facility is open for IN PERSON sessions by appointment only.
Our 7th Annual Synapse House Gala ~ our first ever virtual gala, was held on Saturday, October 3 to support our mission to Engage, Empower and Employ individuals affected by brain injury and stroke.
It was a great success featuring, a one-hour live stream broadcast comprised of Member stories, Clubhouse insights, music, unique & fun auction items and opportunities to donate to support our mission.
If you missed it or want to re-watch portions, the Gala program is available for viewing on the home page of our website.
There's still time to donate and bid on remaining auction items, too!
Thank you so much for your support! It was an incredible evening and so much fun!
We look forward to seeing you next year, in person, at Elmhurst Art Museum on October 2, 2021 for the 8th Annual Synapse House Gala.
- Heartfelt thanks from the Members, Staff and Volunteers of Synapse House
