Pregnancy help center marks 40 years in Northwest suburbs

Success - Article sent! close

For the past 40 years, Northwest suburban women and families facing issues of pregnancy and parenting have turned to the Society to Preserve Human Dignity in Palatine.

To celebrate, the nonprofit organization is hosting a 40th Anniversary Gala Saturday, April 30, at the Marriott Northwest, 4800 Hoffman Blvd., Hoffman Estates.

The event, which costs $140 per person, will feature cocktails, dinner, raffles, auction items and live entertainment by Lori Shane and the Mix.

Kerry Lavelle will be recognized with the Spirit of Life Award.

Proceeds will benefit SPHD, which recently moved its headquarters from Palatine to a bigger facility on Colonial Parkway in Inverness. The new facility will help the agency better provide free professional counseling, education and support services during more than 7,000 client visits each year.

The group was recognized earlier this year by the Palatine village council for the 40-year milestone.
