Prevail, Inc. is pleased to announce that our 2018 Signature Gala, Presented by Hare Chevrolet was another successful opportunity to engage the community in providing hope and healing for our friends and neighbors who need it! Thanks to our all of our supporters, this year’s event raised over $200,000 to support victims and prevent future violence in our community.
In addition to our Presenting Sponsor, Hare Chevrolet; the event was sponsored by our Partner Sponsors, St. Vincent Hospital and Scooch; and our Companion Sponsor, The Grainger Foundation; as well as Biddle Memorial Foundation. The evening began with a cocktail hour and signature drink, the Courage Cuvee, sponsored by Gregor Private Wealth Group and Mr. G’s Liquors. Sun King Brewery also provided selections from their locally brewed beer list. Dinner followed, where attendees had an opportunity to purchase a Golden Ticket that provided them with a chance at the Live Auction Item of their choice! The winner chose an exclusive culinary experience in Tuscany, Italy with all expenses, including airfare, included. During dinner, attendees enjoyed a program with a presentation from a courageous speaker, Christina Parker-Benton who credits Prevail with restoring her hope. The program was emceed by John Freed of Waterline Church and included a live auction with auctioneer Mark Volk. Dessert was an assortment of delicious cupcakes provided by Heavenly Sweets and to top the night off, all enjoyed dancing with The Bishops, sponsored by Wolfie’s Grill! The Renaissance Hotel North is a lovely setting for this event, which would not happen without an extraordinary Gala Planning Committee who works all year to make it possible!
Prevail would like to thank all of those sponsors who make this event possible, in addition to our media sponsors, The Current and Davant.
