Unmask the Violence Gala

Thank you for joining us at our Unmask the Violence Gala on Saturday, October 21, 2017

Save the date for next year’s Gala on October 6, 2018

More than 300 guests enjoyed a fun and exciting evening at Loft 21 in Lincolnshire to raise awareness of domestic violence and $187,000 for lifesaving programs and services for victims and their children and also to celebrate the successful 39th year of A Safe Place in Lake County.

From the magnificent cocktail reception through chef action food stations, live auction, whiskey tasting, cigar rolling, and aerial performances 22 feet in the air, it was a night to remember. With an “Unmask the Violence” theme, guests donned sparkly silver and purple masks, sat at tables with dazzling centerpieces made of feathers, crystals, and masquerade masks, and listened to moving stories from survivors of domestic violence.

We are so grateful for your continued support!

Generous sponsors of the event included Michael and Andrea Rosengarden, Northwestern Memorial Healthcare, Schlesinger & Strauss LLC, David and Patty Anderskow, The Autism Therapy Group, Nancy and Marvin Himmelstein, IRON HORSE Seating, The Law Offices of Robert O. Ackley, Libertyville Bank and Trust Company, Mesirow Financial, Bonnie and Gene Minsky, Ernie and Dawn Rogers, Rust-Oleum, and Schiff Hardin.
