Nearly 300 people accepted the mission to raise money for people experiencing a behavioral or drug abuse-related crisis at the FHN Festival of Trees Casino Royale Gala Friday, Nov. 22 at Grand River Hall in Freeport.
The spy-themed event raised more than $70,000 to achieve a goal set by an anonymous donor, who pledged to double-match all funds if a $50,000 goal was met.
Money raised from the Gala will help fund a planned Crisis Stabilization Center at FHN Family Counseling Center, a special unit that will serve people facing a substance abuse or behavioral health crisis. The double match brings the current fundraising total to more than $210,000.
The donor will double match all funds raised through Nov. 30. To take advantage of having your contribution tripled, visit www.fhn.org/donate-now.asp. Thank you for your support!
Listen to Tonya Meyer, FHN Foundation Executive Director and Gabriel Gonzalez, Assistant Vice President of Behavioral Health talk about the gala on the Dial-a-Doc radio show.
