2019 Black Tie & Blue Jean Extravaganza
You are invited to the 2019 Black Tie & Blue Jean Extravaganza, hosted by the Bellin Health Foundation.
Please join us for the Black Tie & Blue Jean Extravaganza, a one-of-a-kind event where guests are invited to mix and match formal and casual wear. Our 14th annual event will be held Friday, September 6, 13 or 20 (depending upon the Packer Schedule/date confirmed in April) from 6-10 p.m. in the Lambeau Field Atrium. There will be dancing with live music provided by Big Mouth & The Power Tool Horns. Seat reservations to this public event are $150 per person. Table sponsorships for $2,000 are available, as well as a variety of major sponsorship opportunities.
Beneficiaries from this year’s event are Bellin Psychiatric Center’s School-based Mental Health Services and Business and Community Health’s service of Youth Mental Health First Aid. These services will benefit elementary, middle and high school students in nine different school districts and more than seventeen different school locations in NE Wisconsin who are in need of mental health services. (A complete list of the schools benefiting are listed on the back.)
There is a growing and unmet need for mental health services for children and youth throughout the community. Examples of issues seen in the school setting include: stress, anxiety, bullying, family problems, depression, learning disabilities and alcohol/substance abuse. Serious mental health problems, such as self-injurious behaviors and suicide are on the rise, particularly among youth. Nationally, numerous school shootings have been linked to untreated mental health issues.
We have learned that schools are an ideal place to provide mental health services. Through school professionals who all know the students, parents and staff, identification of students/families in most need can be done effectively. As a result of these connections between school resources and our Bellin Psychiatric Center resources, students who had been unable to access or did not have the personal/family support available to gain access to traditional outpatient mental health services are now able to receive these vital services in their school. There are no longer the previous barriers to access treatment, such as students missing school and parents missing work for the student’s mental health appointments.
In addition, more and more schools, as well as community members, are requesting assistance to learn the skills needed to identify students who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. “Youth Mental Health First Aid” is an 8-hour course that gives people these skills. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it does build mental health literacy, helping the public identify, understand, and respond appropriately to signs of mental illness.
By participating in the Black Tie & Blue Jean Extravaganza, you will make a tremendous difference in the lives of students in our community through the School Mental Health Services Program and the Youth Mental Health First Aid Program. We welcome your support!
Many BTBJ Extravaganza sponsorships are available, from table sponsorships to several different major sponsorships, each with their own specific benefits. Please note that the Presenting Sponsorship and the Diamond Sponsorship, our top two sponsorship levels, have incredible radio benefits that go along with them in addition to the many recognition benefits and seats/dinners at the associated tables.
