Rising to the Challenge 2021

Turning Point’s Annual Benefit … this year virtual!

7:00 p.m. CT Registration is now open!

Please register and reserve your tickets here!
Register by November 20th for access to pre-party surprises and a chance to win a special prize in our early bird drawing!

In a year when the COVID-19 crisis has continued to make mental health support all the more essential, we will gather with our community virtually for a night of fun and fundraising!

This year, join in the celebration from the comfort of your own home! What to wear? Your house, your choice! 🙂 Feel free to get in the spirit by wearing Turning Point orange … or whatever you choose! We would love to see your party-at-home selfies!

Our virtual event will feature some familiar faces, special guests, and a dazzling live and silent auction! This year’s program will spotlight The Living Room at Turning Point, our celebrated program for adults in crisis, now celebrating its 10th anniversary!

This year’s auction features:

  • Featured in our silent auction, an extraordinary experience — a Visit with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco on Zoom for your group of up to 20!
  • Featured in our live auction, amazing destination packages to Switzerland, Barcelona, Prague, Breckenridge, and Iceland!

And much more!

Please note: Just like when you attend our in-person benefit, you will be asked for a credit card when you register. This will facilitate any bidding or donations that you choose to make later, but of course the card will only be charged if you make a purchase, or a donation, or make a winning auction bid. You will NOT be charged any fee to attend the online event unless you opt for Premium Tickets. We ask that you please reserve each person in your party individually, or that each person registers themselves with their unique email and cell phone number, so that everyone will have their own registration and each person will be kept informed on all updates!​

All proceeds from the event will support Turning Point Behavioral Health Care Center, an award-winning 501(c)3 non-profit outpatient mental health center that exists to provide solid support, when you need it most. For over 50 years, we have remained committed to providing expert, affordable and compassionate care. Last year, Turning Point served approximately 1,300 clients, both children and adults from throughout the Chicago metro area, approximately 90% of whom were low income. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we creatively shifted our programs to virtual formats and substantially expanded our free crisis programming so as to continue serving as an essential resource for our community. As always, we remain fully committed to our mission of providing solid support, when you need it most.

If you are interested in making a donation to Turning Point today, please visit our donation page.

Thank you so much for your generous support!
