DuPage Medical Group Charitable Fund Raises Record $395,000+ at Annual Care Affair Event

February 7, 2020

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — The DuPage Medical Group (DMG) Charitable Fund, a charitable organization created by DMG, raised a record $395,000+ at its annual Care Affair event on February 1 at Harry Caray’s in Lombard.

The DMG Charitable Fund added a casual, Super Bowl-themed twist to this year's event. More than 240 guests donned their favorite game-day attire and enjoyed game-day eats, cocktails, live music from The Semple Band, a live auction, raffles, tailgate games and more.

Funds raised through sponsorships, donations and the live auction will support non-profit organizations in the communities DMG serves that work to provide access to food, affordable housing and healthcare/wellness services for those in need.

"We’re incredibly grateful for the support and generosity of all donors who helped us raise this record-breaking amount," said DMG Charitable Fund Advisory Board Chair Dr. Amy Stoeffler. "The funds raised will allow the DMG Charitable Fund to continue to directly impact the lives of those in need, right here in the communities we serve."

The DMG Charitable Fund supports more than 50 Chicagoland non-profit organizations through grants, volunteer service from DMG physicians, care providers and staff as well as in-kind donations such as food, toys, clothing and more.

Event and presenting sponsors for the event included DuPage Valley Anesthesiologists, Ltd., Edward-Elmhurst Health, Lab Corp., Leopardo Companies and Nationwide Credit & Collection.
