A record breaking 700 guests participated in the 3rd annual boxing match and casino night hosted at the lovely Drury Lane in Oakbrook Terrace. The venue was transformed into a boxing hub and featured an exciting night of Golden Glove-style amateur boxing fights, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a raffle, classic casino games, and a ringside dinner. Former Illinois Attorney General Jim Ryan and his wife Marie established the fundraiser after the tragic loss of their son, Patrick J. Ryan to suicide. Proceeds of more than $112,000 will be donated to the LOSS program for Children and Youth, which supports children after losing a loved one to suicide. catholiccharities.net
