Help our cause by contributing to our fundraising efforts.

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in keeping with health and governmental recommendations, TriCity Family Services has chosen to make the socially responsible decision of transitioning its Emerald City Gala from an in-person event, originally scheduled for March 21, to a VIRTUAL FUNDRAISER that will take place June 6-13, 2020.

As first responders during this crisis, our clinicians continue to be there for the mental health needs of our community. Now more than ever, it is important that we continue fundraising efforts to help raise critical dollars and ensure that our counseling services remain accessible for everyone. For many nonprofits, including TriCity Family Services, the annual fundraiser is the single biggest revenue generator of the year. While we certainly understand that everyone is impacted by current events, we want our supporters to know that we are still there to serve.

For one week in June, our valued supporters will be able to engage remotely and experience an online auction, raffles and virtual paddle raise. During that time, we will acknowledge event sponsors and Golden Heart Award recipients ... and will also formally recognize sponsors and awardees at our next in-person Gala, in March 2021.

If you already purchased an event ticket, we would like to automatically convert your ticket to a fully tax-deductible donation for TriCity Family Services. In addition, we are offering a ticketed user only raffle item. If you would rather receive a refund for the ticket, please email Michelle Rollins, mrollins@tricityfamilyservices.org, by May 15.

Please stay tuned to the launch of our virtual event and help us spread the word to your family and friends. We are in this together.

TriCity Family Services announced Friday morning (March 13) that they have postponed the organization's Emerald City Gala due to heightened concerns regarding Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

This year's event, which was planned for Saturday, March 21, will be rescheduled for a later date, according to a statement made by the agency.

Postponing the Gala, which is expected to draw nearly 400 people, will avoid a large gathering. Public health officials say limiting exposure to large gatherings is one way to help lessen the spread of the new coronavirus. The decision comes out of an abundance of caution.

Tickets will automatically be transferred to the rescheduled date, which will be announced as soon as we are able to do so.

Any questions may be directed to Michelle Rollins by phone: 630.232.1070, x114, or by email: mrollins@tricityfamilyservices.org.
