Join us in Honoring Our Retiring Executive Director, Patrick Carolan

With bittersweet emotions, we announce the retirement of our Executive Director for the past 10 years, Patrick Carolan. At the end of this year, Patrick will leave FAN in order to pursue a laid back life of ease. In order to celebrate this momentous occasion, we are honoring him with the FAN award at our annual benefit on November 7th, 2019 at St. Francis Hall.

Patrick has lived and loved FAN, nurturing, growing, and building it in to the well-respected organization we are today. We want to send him out with a bang! Beer, wine, and heavy hors d'oeuvres will be served and dress is business casual. There will be auction opportunities and lots of fun. We hope you can join us in Washington D.C.

You can reserve your ticket here.

If you're unable to make it, please consider sending in a donation to honor Patrick for his hard work.

We are putting together a small memory book for him, so if you have a story or photo you'd like to share, send it to our communications coordinator, Janine Walsh at

Patrick's leadership has meant a lot to us and we hope you can join us to thank him and wish him well.
