Turning Point Behavioral Health Care Center hosted its annual RISING TO THE CHALLENGE benefit virtually on Thursday, December 3, 2020. Our thanks to our community for its wonderful support of this event and of the work that it helps to sustain!
Turning Point is pleased to announce that the benefit raised over $100,000 to support Turning Point’s many programs. Christian Farr of NBC5 News served as Master of Ceremonies and featured in the auction were exciting destination packages to Switzerland, Cancun, and Yellowstone as well as a very special Zoom Visit with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco. Turning Point was pleased to welcome back David A. Goodman, Founder and President of Auction Results, LLC, to lead the live auction.
This year’s virtual RISING TO THE CHALLENGE benefit was generously sponsored by Wellness Sponsor NorthShore University HealthSystem.
“We are deeply grateful to our sponsors and to our extraordinary community for its generous support of our first virtual benefit,” said Turning Point CEO Ann Fisher Raney. “Turning Point has continued to serve its many clients remotely throughout the COVID-19 crisis, and we could not have hoped for a more successful evening in support of the expert, affordable, and compassionate care that Turning Point provides.”
