Celebrating 30 years of the Pediatric Resource Center's Service to Illinois Children!

This annual event helps PRC ensure the clinics are staffed with specially-trained providers and child protection specialists so that children can receive the child-friendly medical services that are crucial to their well-being, health, and safety. Additionally, funds raised help PRC to provide education to area physicians, nurses, and other partners regarding prevention efforts and child abuse/neglect concerns.

The event features heavy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails starting at 6 p.m. Musical entertainment will be provided by local artist Johnny Walker. Live and silent auctions through GalaBid mobile bidding ( will feature unique and exciting items, including specialty gift baskets, multiple vacation packages, jewelry, and much more. All proceeds benefit the PRC’s medical and case management services for central Illinois abused and neglected children.

Sponsorship and underwriting opportunities are still available!
