How to Help: Attend

Your attendance is cordially requested

Did you know that you can have a great time and support patients and programs at Rogers Behavioral Health at the same time?

The Foundation hosts two special events each year: Celebrate the Light Gala and Women’s Gathering. Through these events, we create awareness of mental health issues and raise much-needed dollars for those struggling with mental health challenges. Won’t you join us to meet friends old and new who share in the common belief that mental health disease is real and treatable. Together, we can change the course of mental illness and give the gift of better days for those in need.

Celebrate the Light Gala

Celebrate the light logoEvery November, we gather to shine a light on mental health at our Celebrate the Light Gala and raise funds for patients and programs at Rogers. Held in a beautiful venue in downtown Milwaukee, WI, we enjoy award-winning cuisine, share stories of strength and resilience, and celebrate ongoing recovery. Thanks to the generous supporters of our Gala, the Foundation is able to provide children, teens, and adults in need with Patient Care Grants in order to complete their treatment process.

Women’s Gathering

Women's Gathering logoHeld annually in May, our Women’s Gathering raises funds specifically for the Spiritual Care program at Rogers Behavioral Health. Each year, hundreds of women come together in a shared desire to help those with mental health and addiction challenges find purpose and meaning in life through spiritual connections. Funded 100% by the Foundation, the Chaplains at Rogers Behavioral Health have been called to serve more people than ever seeking spiritual guidance as additional means to understand the world we live in and navigate the path to recovery.
