The 2018 Emily Hartshorne Mudd Award honors Reid Blynn and raises $37,775

June 1, 2018 | On May 30th, Council for Relationships presented Reid Blynn with the 2018 Emily Hartshorne Mudd Award at a special reception at Merion Tribute House. As chair of CFR’s board from 2012-2017, Blynn has touched the lives of thousands of people in the greater Philadelphia area and his leadership helped the board to mature professionally. Guest were invited to play “Intersystem Bingo” to get to know their fellow attendees, which highlighted CFR’s focus on the important relationships in clients’ lives. During the short presentation, CEO Deb D’Arcangelo welcomed guests and Board Chair Patricia Owens recognized Reid Blynn, who then gave his remarks.

The 2018 Dr. Emily Hartshorne Mudd Reception raised over $37,775 for Council for Relationships. It was a great success and the funds raised will support CFR’s work with vulnerable populations through programs like the Community Partnerships Initiative, Operation Home and Healing, and Therapy for Low-Fee Clients.
