by WICS/WRSP StaffTuesday, February 26th 2019
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS/WRSP) — Since 1989, the Mini O'Beirne Crisis Nursery has helped prevent child abuse and neglect.
In total, the nursery has been operating for 30 years.
On Tuesday, the nursery announced its 30th Birthday Celebration Gala to raise money for its operations.
To kick-off the campaign, Doctors Regina Kovach and David Steward made a generous donation of $100,000.
"I believe when you help those or some of those in our community, the entire community benefits," Kovach said. "I'm hoping our contribution will help the nursery continue its good and excellent work."
The gala will be held May 4th at the Dove Center at St. John's Prairie Heart Institute.
TIckets for the event are priced at $100 each and invitations will be mailed in the coming weeks.
Anyone interested in attending the gala is urged to contact the nursery at 217-525-6800 weekdays or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information on the event is also available on the nursery's Facebook page.
