On October 1st, 300 guests celebrated the 65th Anniversary of Metropolitan Family Service, (MFS) at the 7th annual A Gathering of Good benefit at The Portland Hilton. This year’s Provocateur award honoree, Dr. Steve Patty, is an international expert in Impact Evaluation. Dr. Patty’s strategies keep MFS at the leading edge of national conversations that evaluate enduring change in ways that matter. A Gathering of Good raised just over $300,000 to help more than 30,000 children, families, and older adults in the greater Portland and SW Washington area move beyond the limitations of poverty, inequity and social isolation.
