Party in the Prairie
The Occasion: Nashville came to the North Shore during Allendale’s 29th Annual Benefit and Auction held at Wagner Farm in Glenview, where guests were invited to dress up in their finest western wear.
The Highlights: More than 200 people enjoyed cocktails, dinner, live and silent auctions, and a concert from the Jimmy Wayne Trio, which inspired some boot-scootin’ line dancing.
The VIPs: Floyd Yager and Tina MacDonald served as the event’s co-chairs, and Mary Shahbazian is Allendale’s current president.
The End Result: More than $50,000 was raised to help the children, youth, and families served by Allendale Association, a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the care, treatment, education, and advocacy for young people who suffer from mental illness or trauma. allendale4kids.org
