Spring Into Recovery Gala 2014
On Thursday, May 22, 2014, Trilogy and its supporters gathered at Loyola University’s Kasbeer Hall for our fundraising event, Spring Into Recovery Gala, during which CBS 2 News anchor Rob Johnson, our Master of Ceremonies, presented Trilogy’s 2014 Legislative Partner in Recovery Award to Representative Jan Schakowsky and Trilogy’s 2014 Individual Partner in Recovery Award to Dr. Bechara Choucair, Commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health. These awards recognize an individual’s outstanding efforts in raising awareness and reducing the stigma associated with serious and persistent mental illness.
Following the award program, more than 175 guests took part in the Silent Auction and bid on special one of a kind items in the Live Auction including a once in a lifetime trip to Italy's beautiful Lake District and an autographed Brandon Marshall Chicago Bears jersey courtesy of the Brandon Marshall Foundation. This year, Trilogy raised more than $60,000 to ensure individuals living with serious mental illness receive the access to behavioral healthcare and primary care services they need in order to begin their path to recovery.
