Family Treatment Center


July 23, 2000|By Sloane Brown

Sticky waves of summer heat rolled off the asphalt of the Parkville Shopping Center, but inside an air-conditioned Heritage Gardens Hall, a different warmth prevailed -- the coziness of a family get-together. About 85 friends and family members gathered to raise $3,200 for the Bradley Family Treatment Center, a new nonprofit organization to help area at-risk juveniles. A disc jockey provided one source of entertainment and the children from several families there provided another, as they chased reflections of spinning disco lights on the dance floor.

Among those enjoying the show: Anne Schisler, event chair; Karen Memphis, Joseph Weiner, E'Laina Weiner and Emmet Davitt, Bradley Family Treatment Center board members; Joyce G. Mahoney, center executive director; Baltimore Police Col. Margaret W. Patten, event honoree; Julie Cuccarese, American Literary Press president; Jerry Chiat, vice president for Acclaimed Promotional Specialties Inc.; Angela Gregory, Financial Security Consultants mortgage broker; Karen Griner Smith, Maryland Department of Juvenile Justice senior juvenile counselor; Matthew Greenstreet, Pabst Brewing Co. on-premise representative; and Walt Wessel, the Home Handyman president.
