This year, Josselyn is delighted to share that our fall fundraising event, “Funding Josselyn’s Journey,” hosted by The Center’s Board of Directors will feature Oscar winner, Marlee Matlin.

Matlin will share her story of overcoming challenges and building resilience on Saturday, November 11 from 6:30 to 10:30 pm at the newly opened LOFT21, located in Lincolnshire.

The night’s events will include a cocktail reception, gourmet dinner, a live auction and paddle raise, and Matlin’s uplifting and inspiring speech.

Through the support raised through this event, The Josselyn Center will be able to reach clients with complex and serious diagnoses before the point of crisis.

Please join us!

  • Cocktail attire is appropriate / ties optional 
  • Music will be provided during cocktail hour by Second City Jazz
  • Most importantly, Loft 21’s address is 1501 N.
