Spring Fling Fundraiser to Benefit LSSI Family Mental Health Programs
Spring Fling, a fundraiser presented by the Women’s Network of LSSI, will be held Saturday, April 27, at the Westin Chicago Northwest, 400 Park Blvd., Itasca. The event opens at 10 a.m. with a selection of 20 special gift boutiques featuring gifts, jewelry, fashion accessories, and food items. The first guests to arrive will have a chance to win a celebratory mimosa or vouchers for savings with vendors. Fun, pop-up mini events will be located throughout the boutiques—20% of the proceeds benefit LSSI’s Family Mental Health Programs.
The professionals of LSSI’s Mental Health programs help navigate children and adults through mental health challenges, and the services make a critical difference in their lives. Some of these programs include:
- Individual, family, and group session counseling
- Screening Assessment and Support Services, which provide crisis intervention and follow-up mental health for children on Chicago’s Northwest side
- LSSI’s Step-up School-Based Counseling program, which is embedded in 20 Chicago Public Schools, and enables children and teens to conveniently access mental health support before reaching a crisis stage
The event also includes raffles, a delicious lunch, and entertainment by Felix & Fingers Dueling Pianos. This high energy, interactive performance is designed to entertain audiences of all ages. The two pianists play all popular genres and artists based on audience requests.
Tickets are $75 each, with a $45 student price. Sponsorships are available.
