17th Annual DuPage Gala

The Gala Committee would like to thank all who supported the 17th Annual Gala for Metropolitan Family Services DuPage.  This record-breaking event raised over $230, 000 to benefit the agency’s programs and services, specifically Early Childhood Education.

The Gala, held Friday, May 11th at Bobak’s Signature Events in Woodridge, attracted almost 400 of DuPage County’s civic and social leaders. Kim Stapleton was honored as the 2018 recipient of the Roger K. Johnson Leadership Award. This is the most prestigious award bestowed by Metropolitan Family Services DuPage.

The Gala featured Meteorologist Tracy Butler from ABC 7 Eyewitness News as the emcee of the ceremonies. Additionally, live and silent auctions, a Jewelry raffle, wine raffle, trips raffle, and more entertained guests throughout the affair. Music was provided by Jim Perona.

Metropolitan’s Board, staff and volunteers thank the event Co-Chairs, Maryellen Klang and Jeff Platt, the entire Gala Committee, sponsors and friends for the tremendous support provided to this year’s Gala!
