DSC_8747The game’s real winner was Sanctuary House, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to the recovery and rehabilitation of adults living with serious mental illness. The funds raised through Scrubs vs. Suits will specifically support the organization’s growing employment program, which helps members gain the skills they need to find purpose in the workforce again.
