2017 DINNER THEATER BANQUET DRAWS RECORD NUMBERS

Thank you to everyone involved with the 2017 Dinner Theater Banquet “Stories Worth Sharing”! The event would not have been as successful without your support – from donors, to attendees, to staff and Members.

This year’s event:
- Raised more than $5,000 in net contributions
- Saw a 20% increase in attendance
- Reached nearly 25% increase in auction donations
- Earned more than $200,000 in media value exposure!!

We hope to DOUBLE these numbers for the 2018 Dinner Theater Benefit, and we’re planning NOW!





 


The results of the 2017 event are just the beginning of a very positive trend for our organization, which needs to increasingly provide services and assistance to more and more community members struggling with mental illness annually.

Current statistics show:
- Approximately 1 in 5 adults have a mental illness each year -

                about 155,000 adults in Lake County, IL!
- About 10.2 million adults have co-occurring mental health &

                addiction disorders
- More than 26% of homeless adults live with serious mental illness
- Approximately 90% of those who die by suicide have an

                underlying mental illness
- 60% of adults with mental illness didn’t get health services the

                previous year
- Adults with mental illness die an average of 25 years earlier,

                largely due to treatable conditions

The Independence Center Provides the resources these adults need to maintain life-long independence.
