Family Service Association's First Monster Mash a Success in Raising Funds to Support Youth Mental Health Services
On Saturday, October 26th, witches, warlocks, gangsters and prisoners gathered to support a worthy cause: to raise funds for Family Service Association’s Juvenile Justice Jeopardy 2020 roll out. Family Service Association’s (FSA) provides mental health and support services to young people and their families.
Senior Services Associates hosted the first ever event where each table was decorated to the nines by table hosts/hostesses and their crew. The evening kicked off with dinner followed by the judges (Elgin Police Chief Anna Lalley, Judge Michael Noland, and Elgin Councilman Baldemar Lopez) awarding Kiwanis Club’s Addams family theme the Best Dressed Table award, followed by the Clue-themed and Dia de Los Muertos tables. The awards for best costumes were, of course, the witches, warlocks and the queen of the Dia Los Muertos!
Entertainment was provided by dancers from Simply Destinee Youth Center whose mission is to provide community-based support to youth in the areas of safety, health and readiness to learn.
Witches, flappers, skeletons and opera phantoms danced the night away to music provided by local DJ Edison.
Fun was had by all while dollars were raised to assist FSA programs that educate youth with the goal of increasing positive interactions between young people and law enforcement ensuring success in their homes, communities and schools.
