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.

Dancing with the Rockford Stars

Saturday, November 19, 2022

We are so grateful for the support of so many people who came together to make the 15th Anniversary Crystal Gala of Dancing with the Rockford Stars a sparkling success!

Thank you to everyone in the sold out crowd who joined us.

A big thank you also to our Celebrity Dancers and their wildly talented Dance Coaches from local dance companies and our Celebrity Judges – without these folks and our Alumni Dancers it would have been a very dull evening!

We are so appreciative for our generous sponsors, without whom all the lights, music and special touches wouldn’t be possible.

We’re thankful for our live and silent auction donors and the winning bidders along with everyone who voted “early and often” for our Celebrity Dancers.

We’re indebted beyond measure to the Committee and all the volunteers whose vision and hard work made this our biggest and most successful Dancing with the Rockford Stars ever! All of this support is already at work changing the lives of children and adults in our community.

Watch this space for information on our 2023 event!
