BATAVIA – The Friends of TriCity Family Services group hosted its 24th annual benefit and auction, “All That Glitters ... Treasuring Teens,” on April 20 at Lincoln Inn Banquets in Batavia. 

TriCity Family Services, an organization that provides counseling and other mental health services to the community, received more than $144,000 at the event.

More than 360 guests attended the benefit.

At the event, an orchestral quartet from Batavia High School performed during a cocktail hour while guests socialized, ate hors d’oeuvres and browsed the silent auction. 

 Three Golden Heart Awards were presented to longtime philanthropic supporters of TriCity Family Services. The Golden Heart Awards recognize and honor those who champion for accessible mental health services in the community. 

The awards were presented to Jack and Ginny Young for an individual or couple; The Norris Foundation for a company or foundation; and The Exchange Club of the TriCities for a community group or organization.
