DuPage Gala 2013
The Gala Committee thanks all whose support helped make the 12th Annual Gala for Metropolitan Family Services DuPage a record-breaking success. The spectacular event raised more than $243,000 to benefit the agency’s programs and services for DuPage County families.
The Gala, held Friday, April 26 at Bobak’s Signature Events in Woodridge, attracted nearly 400 of DuPage County’s civic and social leaders. Alan and Milly Peterson were honored as the 2013 recipients of the Roger K. Johnson Leadership Award. This is the most prestigious award bestowed by Metropolitan Family Services DuPage.
The Gala featured renowned news broadcaster Judy Hsu of ABC7 News as emcee of the ceremonies. Additionally, live and silent auctions, a champagne raffle, a wine raffle and more entertained guests throughout the evening. Music was provided by Nocturne - Strings of Silk.
Metropolitan’s Board, staff and volunteers thank the event Co-Chairs, Bill Jennrich and Kim Stapleton, the entire Gala Committee, sponsors and friends for the tremendous support provided to this year’s amazing Gala!
