Metamorphosis Party a Success!

Thanks to all of the wonderful supporters who came out on Friday night to this year's Metamorphosis Party!  More than 200 party-goers enjoyed festive food and delicious desserts by the Entertaining Company while bidding on great live and silent auction items.  A few bidding wars broke out, but in the end everyone went home happy!  DJ Shaka23 was on hand to spin a mix of songs that entertained the whole crowd.  At the end of the night, more than $92,000 was raised to directly support the programs and guests of the Lincoln Park Community Shelter. 

The goal of the night was not only to raise funds, but also to honor the work of longtime supporters of the organization with the Compassion in Action award.  This year's honorees were the leaders of the four founding congregations of LPCS: Pastor Jeffery Doane from Lincoln Park Presbyterian Church, Reverend Tom Henry from St. Pauls UCC, Father Tom Hickey from St. Clement Church, and the Reverend Linda Packard from Church of Our Saviour.  The Compassion in Action Award was established last year to recognize exceptional contributions to LPCS since its founding 26 years ago.
