YouthBuild Lake County is excited to host our 13th annual Spring Benefit! The Spring Benefit features a live and silent auction and directly supports the programming we provide to our students. Last year we raised over $175,000 in proceeds, and we look forward to surpassing that number this year with your generous support!

This year’s event will be held at The Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington Hills. This private estate hosts a limited number of events per year and boasts the world’s largest collection of restored self-playing instruments. Spring Benefit guests will be welcomed with a tour of the Estate before joining the reception in the Eden Palais Carousel Pavilion. This pavilion is home to a gorgeous working carousel – the most complete example of a European salon carousel in existence!

Seating is limited to 300 guests, so don’t delay on getting your tickets to this one-of-a-kind event!

  • Estate Tour – 5:00pm
  • Reception – 6:00pm

    I have observed that online education is getting popular because attaining your degree online has developed into a popular alternative for many people. Quite a few people have not had a possibility to attend a conventional college or university nonetheless seek the raised earning potential and a better job that a Bachelor Degree offers. Still other folks might have a college degree in one training but would choose to pursue a thing they now have an interest in.

      Thanks for this comment, Clemencia. You are absolutely right! Technology can help to make education more accessible to more people, which is a great thing. There is no one way that is the right way for everyone, so it is exciting to see a greater variety of education options be utilized by a greater variety of communities.

Come every day. Keep coming even after you get your diploma, because YBLC is still there for you. Don’t take this opportunity for granted because they care.
