PADS of Elgin Winter Gala ~ Benefiting Area Homeless

Please Join us for an unforgettable evening for our annual Winter Harvest Gala on February 4th at the Stonegate Banquet Center! The night will entail a beautiful 3 course meal (with a vegan option available), complimentary wine, a local celebrity dance competition, and a silent and live auction!

Facts about PADs of Elgin:

This year we have experienced a very high volume of shelter requests. Our waitlists started in June and continues today. We have prioritized families (currently we have four families) and the elderly.

70% of the individuals and families experiencing homelessness have at least one job.

In Kane County you need to make $24/hour to afford housing.

Current available housing is at a record low of .06% in Kane County.

PADS’ provides individuals and families with a provide a safe place to sleep, 3 warm meals, showers, laundry facilities and most importantly, our case management.

Case managers meet with each guest and together they create a plan tailored to their individual needs. Each plan may include money management, life skills, assistance with securing a GED, job assistance, job training opportunities and if needed, referrals to outside services such as substance abuse or mental health counseling.

The Winter Harvest Stars Dance Gala is our biggest fundraising event of the year & helps us provide all these services to our neighbors to help them get them back on their feet.

Unable to attend the Gala, but still want to help?

Carpentersville Police Department Polar Plunge 2023

 Our plunge site was “noticed” to say the least, after last year’s event with right around $10,000 raised for the Illinois Special Olympics. 

There are a few police departments / fire departments that have already asked to plunge at our site this year too. 

Details about this year’s event:

Date: March 4, 2023

Time: 10am – 12pm (Plunge at 12pm)

Location: 1075 Tamarac Drive, Carpentersville IL 60110

The theme is…*drumroll please*……Dress as your favorite SUPERHERO

Below is the link to sign up for the “Village of Carpentersville” team.

Click on “JOIN OUR TEAM” and fill out the form.  Make sure to include your sweatshirt size to receive one from Special Olympics Illinois. 

Some more details…because I am all about everyone knowing the plan:

We support Illinois Special Olympics by having each plunger raising a minimum of $100.  On March 4, 2023 everyone (plungers, plungers families, the press, supporters…everyone) meets at Cville public works.  The plungers will take the plunge at 12pm in a controlled environment (East Dundee FD’s training tank) which is no more than 4 feet deep.  (If you cannot swim, no worries, we got you!)  There are changing areas for the plungers to use.  Depending on the weather, those who are there to watch the plunge will be in a warming area right inside the public works building.  Last year we had snacks and drinks, which we plan on doing again.  Starbucks will be giving away free coffee at the event to show their support as well.  This is going to be a huge community event that we hope will keep getting bigger each year.
