Fundraising Events

In order to continue our mission of providing counseling to ALL, regardless of their economic circumstances, we need help from the community. Holding fundraising events is one of the methods employed to raise the funds needed to span the difference between the cost of providing an hour of counseling and the amount clients are able to pay.

Summer is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with a sizzling grill and meat from Cattle and Cream in Cherry Valley? Get ready for the Summer Grillin’ Meat Box Raffle, a chance to win a box of premium cuts of meat that will turn your backyard barbecue into a gourmet feast.

Ticket sales for the raffle will begin on April 28, 2023 and will continue until June 15, 2023. You can purchase your tickets from several locations, including Cattle & Cream, Family Counseling Services, online, or from an FCS Board member. Don’t wait too long to buy your tickets, as they are likely to sell out quickly!


1st Prize – $500 box of meat

2nd Prize – $250 box of meat

Tickets are $5 each or 5 tickets for $20.
