The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State of Illinois have both made strong recommendations in recent days regarding canceling events with significant attendance. Based on these recommendations, and for the wellbeing of the community, Rosecrance believes it is prudent to postpone its annual Foundation event.
As a behavioral healthcare organization, the safety of the community, clients, and staff is the highest priority. While it is disappointing to not share in these celebrations at this time, Rosecrance is confident in the decision to heed the expert recommendations and limit large social gatherings.
Scheduled for Monday, April 27, the annual Rosecrance Foundation benefit is a key fundraiser to support Rosecrance treatment services, thanks to many generous benefactors and individuals. Proceeds support the Rosecrance Kinley Fund, which allowed Rosecrance to serve over 800 families last year with charity care to reduce financial barriers to treatment and support mission-critical programs.
An alternative event and date will be determined at a later time.
