Gala Raises Funds for Mental Health Counseling


Byline: Submitted by Patricia Bleck

Youth & Family Counseling Auxiliary hosted the 2016 Boots & Bling Gala on Oct. 22 at the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort.

Since 1962, YFC has helped make professional counseling services affordable for thousands of Lake County families. At the 2016 gala, more than $130,000 was raised to support counseling services for children and teens in Lake County.

Guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers in the Grand Marquee Pavilion. A raffle, silent auction, gourmet bourbon tasting by Ken Ruff & Beam Suntory, and a country western-themed photo booth added to the event's excitement. A sit-down dinner was accented by colorful fall floral arrangements and country music.

YFC Board President Steve Ihm and YFC Executive Director Janelle Moravek welcomed guests and thanked everyone for supporting YFC's mission: Opening doors to mental health care so people can cope, heal and thrive. YFC Counselor Gina Tober, MA, LCPC, and Client Services Coordinator Catherine VanDamme were the featured speakers, sharing their own personal and professional experience in counseling and connecting clients with mental health services.

Catherine Knebel Evans of CKE Charity Auctioneers raised funds during a live auction of "Hamilton" tickets, a signed Anthony Rizzo jersey, and more. During the dinner, guests followed the Chicago Cubs on the big screen as they became the National League Champions and advanced to the 2016 World Series. Later in the evening, guests danced to the tunes of Gone Country.

The 2016 gala was co-chaired by Anne Brandt and Maria Rill, supported by YFC staff and Gala Committee members Patricia Bleck, May Evans, Annette Freyman, Kristin Griffith, Michelle Krumm, Maggie Losch, Kaarn Luce, Stephanie Marcus, Sharon Mullins, Lorraine Pritchard, Casey Rooney, Sue Rudolphi, Kathleen Salemi, Heather Schaffer, Leia Skie, Laurie Wienke and Judy Zoellick. …
