You are cordially invited to attend the Celebrate the Light Gala. Join us for an elegant evening of inspiration and education as we shine the light on mental health and raise funds for patients and programs at Rogers Behavioral Health.


Siblings are often the unsung heroes when it comes to their brother or sister’s mental health journey. With strength and courage, siblings walk the path with them, sometimes having to fight for their own well-being while feelings of confusion, sadness, loneliness, and even frustration take their toll. Rogers strives to bring siblings and family members into the treatment process, to teach them, support them, encourage them, and provide them with tools as they help their loved one on the path to recovery.

At this year’s Gala, hear heartfelt stories from siblings who have grown alongside an individual who has struggled with a mental health challenge.

Take in the stunning views of Lake Michigan and Milwaukee’s magnificent skyline as we celebrate the light of mental health and wellness amidst the premier lakefront event venue at Discovery World.

Upon arrival, let your taste buds lead you down the promenade to the welcome reception in the new Power On exhibit where you’ll find delicious hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. In this exciting and engaging exhibit, you can explore different types of energy and learn how people transform energy from different sources into civilization. Discover how energy from the sun drives life, the weather, and our world. Put your hand inside a tornado. Experiment with gravity and invisible light energy. Harness the power of you and fly a drone. Run the city, and so much more!

Be entertained with exquisite raffles and the super silent auction while chatting with friends within the interactive Power On Exhibit. You will then move into the pavilion for a mouth-watering dinner and the night’s featured presentation. Afterward, stop by the coffee bar and dessert station in the promenade before the evening concludes. Throughout the entire night, you will be treated to the four-star cuisine of Milwaukee’s very own Bartolotta Catering.


This year, we invite you to take part in our “Glitz and Glam” attire. Creativity meets class. Anything goes – from black tie, to jeans dressed up with some glam.
