Braving unseasonably heavy snow on April 27, dedicated JourneyCare supporters gathered at Avante Banquets in Fox River Grove to celebrate the 1940s at JourneyCare Foundation’s annual Decade Dance, “Jump, Jive & Wail.”
Donning their best costumes from the era (click here to see more photos of their looks), supporters participated in a live auction, raffle and danced to music by Big City Swing and the Michael McGrath Orchestra. They also heard pediatric patient mom Stefanie Boyce share her experience with JourneyCare’s All About Kids program. JourneyCare helped Stefanie and her husband care for their children after they were diagnosed with Sanfilippo syndrome.
The crowd raised $40,000 to benefit All About Kids, helping ensure all pediatric families in need have access to care. Thank you to all who were a part of this nostalgic, special evening!
