Tri City Health Partnership is hosting the second annual Casino Royale fundraiser at 6 p.m. Oct. 12 at the Q Center, St. Charles. The evening will feature dinner, an open bar, a silent auction, raffle and more.

TCHP offers medical and dental services free of charge to uninsured, lower-income residents of central Kane County. The organization relies solely on fundraisers and does not receive federal or state funding.

“Last year’s event was an overwhelming success and people are excited to come back. It was fun to watch the cheering on of those at the tables. It really felt like everyone was 'all in' for each other and the patients we serve,” says TCHP Executive Director Kim Lamansky.

At TCHP, medical care is provided by volunteer medical professionals assisted by a small staff. Tri City Health Partnership has provided more than 30,000 on-site visits to 6,000 individuals since its inception in 2001.

“This event is not only a fun way to share our mission and stories, but the revenue is truly needed. We understand there a lot of amazing causes in the community that people can support, but by attending Casino Royale, supporters can find joy knowing that they are truly helping to save lives of their neighbors, from baristas, bartenders, homeless, hairdressers, lawn care workers, clergy, business owners and more," she says. "Our patients are people you know."
