Author: Lisa Berman, Pat Callahan Scholarship Committee Chair
It will be my pleasure to host a dinner party and silent auction to support a KSCSW scholarship in honor of Pat Callahan, MSW, LCSW, on Saturday, August 18. Pat was a long-time KSCSW member and board member who provided LCSW supervision and mentorship to many young clinical social workers. The scholarship will be awarded to one or more KSCSW members to help cover the cost of clinical supervision as they work towards licensure and/or certification in a specific area of concentration.
Several KSCSW members have asked how they can help with the event. At this point, I encourage everyone to help get items donated for the silent auction. The more items we have to auction, the more money there will be for the scholarship. The Callahan Scholarship Committee is happy to help you ask for and collect auction items. We have a form letter available for you to give to businesses that you would like to ask for donations. We also have a volunteer who is willing to assemble theme baskets if we can acquire several items that would group together along a common theme, such as “Keeneland/horses”, “UK,” “bath and body”, “kitchen” or “garden.”
More details about the dinner and silent auction will be available soon. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact me or anyone on the Callahan Memorial Committee. Our names with email links are listed below. You can also contact me directly to arrange pick up for any items you would like to donate for the silent auction.
