CRYSTAL LAKE – More than $165,000 was raised at The Family Health Partnership Clinic’s annual Gala & Dinner Auction at the Holiday Inn. 800 S. Route 31, Crystal Lake.
The Kentucky Derby-themed evening attracted 250 guests and featured southern-style food and entertainment. Derby attire was encouraged – especially hats.
Vince Foglia, CEO of Sage Products, gave opening remarks which focused on philanthropy and giving back to the community. He also presented each attendee with a copy of the book "The Go Giver" by Bob Burg and John David Mann.
The evening included a live and silent auction conducted by Woodstock Mayor Brian Sager. After the auctions, guests had an opportunity to purchase specific items for use in the new clinic facility, slated to open in Crystal Lake in October.
“With the assistance of Mayor Sager and the support of Mr. Foglia and many guests, the clinic was able to raise the largest amount ever for the clinic at this event, just over $165,000," said FHPC Development Coordinator Cathy Patenaude. "We are very fortunate and thankful for their involvement and belief in what FHPC stands for.”
Centegra Health System, Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital and Covidien were this year’s top “Triple Crown” sponsors.
