CRYSTAL LAKE – This year, the Kentucky Derby comes early to McHenry County.

The 16th annual Gala and Dinner Auction for Family Health Partnership Clinic will be April 12 at the Crystal Lake Holiday Inn, 800 S. Route 31.

This annual event raises money for Family Health Partnership Clinic medical services provided to those in area communities 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 the hats.

The night’s highlights will be the silent and live auctions offering items including a trip to Disney World in Orlando, box-seat tickets to the Arlington Million and more. 

Tickets may be bought for $90, or a table of 10 for $800.

To attend or donate an item to the auction, contact Liz Annetti at 815-334-8987, ext. 25, or
