What is the Illuminaton Ball?

We are proud to announce the inaugural Illumination Ball for CHADS Coalition! It will be the largest annual fundraising event for the CHADS. To set the mood for the Illumination Ball, you’ll get a chance to experience the many ways in which CHADS lights up the lives of the kids in our community. The event will take place at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center on September 7, 2017.

Our goal is to join with more than 250 friends of CHADS Coalition at the ball to celebrate our mission and the wonderful kids we serve. The cocktail party will begin at 6:00 p.m. Guests will enjoy lovely hors d’oeuvres and cocktails and have an opportunity to preview, bid on, and purchase a variety of silent auction items as well as enjoy spectacular live music.

During the gala, we will continue the silent auction while providing an elegant meal with an open bar. A heartwarming video will showcase one of our CHADS families and share the impact the agency is making on the children and families we serve.

The evening will also include a live auction with specialty items, including gift packages, hotel stays, sports tickets, and a host of other fabulous bidding options. Incredible local musicians will offer entertainment and dancing, and we will have a special surprise to end our wonderful evening that you are not going to want to miss.

Who is the beneficiary of the Illumination Ball?

Proceeds directly benefit the more than 30,000 children we serve with bullying prevention programming, suicide prevention programming, and licensed, professional counseling services.
