At the annual Hope Has a Home Gala, Gateway Rehab Center’s 300 guests came down with a serious case of boogie fever. Iconic peace signs and flashy disco balls blitzed the Westin Convention Center Hotel, decked out for the event’s groovy throwback theme, centered around the year 1972, when Gateway first opened its doors to adult patients. Guest of honor Steven Ford, actor and son of former President Gerald R. Ford and Betty Ford, raised a toast in honor of Gateway’s 40th year of operation, and Gateway commended its retiring president and CEO, Kenneth S. Ramsey, for his 36 years of devoted service. But the love didn’t end there. Event organizers also praised all attendees for their continuous support and inspiration for Gateway Rehab’s future. How can you not “dig” that?
