The 2016 Boulevard Gala: "An Evening to Transform Lives"

We enjoyed an amazing evening filled with inspirational stories, and a celebration of healing and life-change. The 2016 Gala raised vital support for the mission of The Boulevard - many men and women will be restored to health and begin independent lives as a result! 

Multiple people are responsible for this wonderful success, including The Boulevard Board of Directors and Associate Board, The Boulevard Staff, the stellar Gala Volunteer Team, Joseph Leigh Designs, Picture Show Films, Whitney Fitzpatrick Photography, Codi Palm Videography, Jewell Events Catering, Moonlight Studios, Sound Investments, CL Graphics, Grace Lidstone Design and DJ Ed O'Dea.

Very special thanks goes to our Auctioneer Renee Jones and our MC Scott Adsit, and to our Guest Speaker, Kevin Thrash of the Board of Directors, who shared his own story from his time as a Boulevard resident. 

The 2016 Gala would not be possible without all our sponsors, including Presenting Sponsors Joseph and Bessie Feinberg Foundation and Sammons Financial Group.

Congratulations goes out to our 2016 Gala Honorees, who have exhibited a long and faithful legacy of service and generosity. The team at Sammons Financial Group and the people of Winnetka Congregational Church have been dedicated in their support of ill and injured homeless people, and they deserve this recognition. Thank you!
