Spring Benefit

The Spring Benefit has gone VIRTUAL!   During these difficult times, our Board of Directors agreed it was best to hold our benefit virtually. What does this mean for you? 

You can still donate!

You can still be a part of changing the lives of our young members!

The need for fundraising has not decreased.  We are relying on your support to help us achieve our original goal for the Spring Benefit of $150,000. Donate now using the form below!

The Silent Auction is Still On!

Starting April 13, we invite you to participate in the silent auction. Please visit our event, auction site.  You’ll need to register to bid, but your information will not be shared with any 3rd party groups.

The auction will close on April 18 at at 6 p.m.  Set your max bid and you’ll be alerted if you’re outbid!  Or, use the “buy it now” option to grab what you really want!

Our sponsors play an integral part in the success of our programming. We thank all of our sponsors for their donations and commitment to the students and the mission of YouthBuild Lake County.
