Rogers Staff are True Gala Heroes12/19/17 02:48:pm
The 2017 Celebrate the Light Gala has officially come and gone, but the light continues to shine bright on patients and programs at Rogers Behavioral Health. Thanks to a record 425 guests, 80 sponsors, 67 auction donors, 19 Gala committee members, and countless Gala Heroes (Rogers staff), more than $180,000 in free treatment will be given to individuals and families in need!
They say that “true heroes aren’t measured by the size of their strength, but by the strength of their hearts.” The staff at Rogers are true heroes, showing the strength of their hearts every day by fighting the battle against mental health and addiction challenges.
Overall, staff participation in the Gala Hero program directly accounted for 40% of the total auction proceeds that evening. This includes 27 Auction Patron sponsored packages, 15 Rogers Baskets, and 44 bottles of wine for the Wine Pull. In fact, 100% of the items sold that evening, and the Rogers Baskets went for more than their actual value!
