Don't Stop Believin'

| October 3, 2014 | Parties National

The Party
Almost 285 guests gathered at the home of the JourneyCare gala’s honorary co-chair Rick Hardy, enjoying cocktails and savory hors d’oeuvres around his Barrington Hills pool and home.

The Scene
Although a thunderstorm rolled through, spirits were not dampened as the attendees feasted on a gourmet dinner of grilled skirt steak paired with Chilean sea bass wrapped in a banana leaf. The night continued with dancing and vocals from the High Society Orchestra.

The Highlights
It was the most successful gala in history for the Barrington-based not-for-profit agency that provides end-of-life care to patients and emotional support to their families. “Each year, JourneyCare sees more and more patients and families in need,” Foundation Director Jason Leppin says. “The success of the gala truly demonstrates the commitment of the community to our mission. We are grateful for the generous support and the tremendous difference it makes for our patients and families.” The event raised $477,000; more than $50,000 over the fundraising goal. Bravo! -
