Clinic to Host 'Derby' Gala & Dinner Auction

CRYSTAL LAKE – The Kentucky Derby comes early to McHenry County with Family Health Partnership Clinic's 16th annual Gala & Dinner Auction at 6 p.m. April 12 at the Holiday Inn in Crystal Lake.

The annual event raises money for Family Health Partnership Clinic medical services provided to those who do not have health insurance or who are underinsured.

The Kentucky Derby-themed evening will feature Southern-style food and entertainment. Derby attire is encouraged – especially hats! The night’s highlights will be the silent and live auctions offering items that include a trip to Walt Disney World.

Centegra Health System, Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital and Covidien are this year’s top “Triple Crown” sponsors. 

Tickets are $90, or $800 for a table of 10. To attend or donate an item to the auction, call Liz Annetti at 815-334-8987, ext. 25, or email
