Sponsor or Attend an Event

Each year YFC holds two special events to raise funds and increase awareness of the need for affordable mental health services in Lake County. Our Food for Thought Luncheon in May features informative and inspiring speakers, in celebration of Mental Health Awareness Month. Our annual Gala is an evening event featuring cocktails and dinner, entertainment, a raffle, and live and silent auctions, all to support counseling services for children and teens.

Your involvement in these events as a participant, a sponsor, or a volunteer will help us to provide affordable counseling for children, teens, adults, and families in our community.
