We welcome individuals, families, schools, businesses, social groups and organizations to host an event. Events can range from bake sales to 5k runs and major golf outings. Independent fundraising or third-party events are developed by non-NorthPointe staff to help raise money to support our programs. One example of this is the annual Knights of Columbus Tootsie Roll drive that takes place every fall. The Knights from Our Lady of Humility Parish in Zion have generously donated proceeds from the drive for more than 10 years.
More recently the kind folks at KSKJ in Waukegan hosted a bowling night. Not only did all of the proceeds from the event and raffles go to NorthPointe but they also asked guests to bring toiletry items for NorthPointe clients. And did they ever!
