18th Annual DuPage Gala

The DuPage Gala Committee would like to thank all who supported the 18th Annual “Magical Moments” Gala for Metropolitan Family Services DuPage.  This record-breaking event raised over $260,000 to benefit our mental health programs.

The Gala, held Friday, May 10th at Bobak’s Signature Events in Woodridge, attracted almost 500 of DuPage County’s civic and social leaders. Steve and Dina Gonzalez were honored as the 2019 recipients of the Roger K. Johnson Leadership Award. This is the most prestigious award bestowed by Metropolitan Family Services DuPage, and honors outstanding commitment to the communities we serve. Read more about Steve and Dina here.

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

The Gala featured John Garcia from ABC 7 Eyewitness News as the emcee of the ceremonies. Additionally, live and silent auctions, wine raffle, trips raffle, and more entertained guests throughout the affair. Jim Perona provided the music, and magician Mike O’Donnell performed strolling magic for guests.

Proceeds from this year’s DuPage Gala benefited Metropolitan DuPage’s efforts to provide mental health services across the life span. As Metropolitan DuPage expands our mental and behavioral health offerings and community partnerships to address these issues, this year’s theme of Magical Moments brought attention and awareness to the accomplishments made possible by families and individuals who participate in our programs and services.
