Gala (continued) Honoree: Colin Farrell
|Martha Fling & Colin Farrell|
Board member Martha Fling presented the inaugural Moving Families Forward Award to actor Colin Farrell for his efforts shining a light on what it means to be the parent of a child with special needs. The Ackerman Institute also named a one-year scholarship for family therapy to a family with a special needs child in Colin’s name.
In Colin’s words: “I understand how helpful it is to have all kinds of resources available – for your child and for your family – the kind of resources Ackerman is making available to so many families in need each year. I am thrilled to be here tonight and honored that through my involvement, a family with a special needs child will get the support they need.”
