Nearly 500 guests celebrated a record-breaking $292,000 fundraising effort for nearly 30 programs supported by Pillars in the Chicagoland area. Elegant attendees arrived in their formal attire, enjoying cocktails, a delicious dinner, and a live auction. The nonprofit debuted a video featuring a staff member reading clients’ letters about their experiences with Pillars. Following the video, supporters raised their paddles to submit additional donations. Pillars offers aid across five lines of service: Mental Health, Addictions, Domestic & Sexual Violence, Child & Family Services, and Community Housing. pillarscommunity.org
