    • Purchase tickets ($125). This year, your entire ticket price is a donation to LCFS to protect children, strengthen families and build futures for those who’ve experienced trauma. With each ticket purchase, you’ll be entered in a raffle to win a gorgeous diamond pendant necklace valued at $1,000 from A. Marek Fine Jewelry donated by a generous supporter.
 
    • Host a home party – gather a group of 10 (including yourself) send us your guest list and we’ll provide a grocery gift card and more as a thank you for hosting your gathering. You may choose to make your gathering quick and simple (throw in a pizza, have some wine and cheese … or come up with your own more elaborate theme … Oktoberfest, Halloween costume party, etc)
 
    • Tune in via Facebook Live or YouTube Live. We’ll send you the link to watch on your computer or phone and a tutorial for mirroring to your SmartTV if you’d like to watch on a bigger screen
 

The virtual LIVE event will feature an emcee and professional production with:


    • Touching messages from LCFS President and CEO Mike Bertrand, an essential LCFS worker on the front lines and a client whose life has been greatly impacted by LCFS
 
    • The paddle raise and a you-won’t-want-to-miss Live Auction. Your bids will be taken live through our event software and announced by our professional auctioneer
   
    • Raffle drawings
 
    • Participation prize drawing for those posting on social media with the hashtags #GatherforGood and #HarvestFestivalHomeEdition
 
  • A silent auction will open a few days before the event and finish that night
We hope that whether you’ve attended the Harvest Festival for years or never been that you will consider being a part of this year’s unique event and making it our most successful yet! The children and families we serve need your support now more than ever. Tickets can be purchased above. Please reach out to Mandy Widtfeldt at mandy_widtfeldt@lcfs.org or 708.488.5558 with questions.

About the Cause

The mission of LCFS is to nurture and strengthen children and families in need. As the second largest private child welfare provider in Illinois, LCFS protects children, strengthens families and builds futures for those who have experienced trauma. Imagine being an innocent, helpless child and suffering abuse and neglect at the hands of a loved one. In Illinois, on average 125,000 children are abused and neglected each year. LCFS believes that one child is too many. With your support, LCFS will lead efforts within the state toward ensuring all children are well cared for and safe. Your support of LCFS’ Harvest Festival will generate heightened visibility for your company, while making a difference for Illinois’ children. Your sponsorship instantly puts your company’s brand in front of an audience of approximately 200 people who enjoy having a good time while supporting a cause that’s dear to their hearts.

If you are interested in sponsoring this event, contact the Special Events Team at 708-488-5558 or events@lcfs.org with any questions.
