WellSpring Celebration Luncheon 2020 POSTPONED
We are disappointed to let you know that we’ve needed to postpone our WellSpring Celebration Luncheon because of COVID-19. We are so sad to do this, but at the same time, so very pleased that our speaker, Michelle Staubach Grimes, and interviewer, Brett Shipp, have both agreed to join us next year, on April 22, 2021.
As you know, the luncheon is a primary fundraiser that allows us to provide a place to belong for those who struggle with mental illnesses and are thirsty for acceptance, support and meaningful relationships. The Well offers hope and healing through best-practice interventions, friendships and the power of faith. Your support is vital to enabling The Well to serve our members now and into the future.
Brett and Michelle put together a very brief video to share their thoughts about the postponement and their excitement about next year.
We look forward to seeing you at 2021 WellSpring Celebration Luncheon! April 22, 2021

Michelle spent her formative years in Dallas, Texas, graduating from Ursuline Academy in 1986. She received her B.A. in 1990 and her J.D. in 1994 from The Catholic University of America in Washington. D.C., practiced law for several years and then stayed at home to raise her three children.
Our conversation with Michelle will be led by Brett Shipp. After a 35-year career in television news, Brett Shipp started Brett Shipp Media, a consulting and media strategy business focused on helping businesses and individuals get media attention, win a fight or get justice.
