Child Guidance Center to Recognize Bill Janike at Gourmet Comfort Classic Event
The Child Guidance Center (www.child-guidance.org) will honor Bill Janike with the 2017 Leader in Children’s Mental Health Award for his tireless work with at-risk youth at the ninth annual Gourmet Comfort Classic. Bill has worked with countless young people during his career as a former Therapist at Child Guidance Center and a longtime leader in Lancaster County Juvenile Probation. He currently volunteers for the Child Guidance Center Therapeutic Group Home working with boys ages 12-18, helping them to learn healthy coping strategies to heal from trauma.
The event is a chef competition featuring the area’s top chefs who donate food and their time as they compete to create the finest gourmet version of a classic comfort food. This year’s fiesta-themed event will be held on Cinco de Mayo, May 5th, at The Nebraska Club, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. The event includes a program, raffle, silent auction and live music.
Sponsorships are available beginning at $1,000 and businesses may also donate auction baskets to help Child Guidance Center raise more than $30,000 for crucial mental health services for children and families.
