City employees are hosting a bake sale and raffle Oct. 25 benefitting the Kane County Specialty Courts Foundation. Cookies, cupcakes, brownies, pies, caramel apples made by City employees will be for sale in the Municipal Building lobby from 9 a.m. to 1:30p.m. Raffle tickets also will be sold for $3 each for a chance to win some amazing prizes from local businesses.
The Kane County Specialty Courts Foundation is a 501C3 non-profit organization that supports the three Kane County specialty courts: Drug Rehabilitation Court, Treatment Alternative Court (for those with mental health issues), and Veterans Treatment Court.
These three specialty courts provide an alternative to incarceration for defendants whose criminal behavior is linked to drug abuse or mental health disorders. Justice professionals work together with substance abuse professionals and local social service programs to help these defendants.
The Foundation raises funds to help pay for items used as rewards for modifying behavior. Items purchased include gift cards, educational and medical expenses, and bus and Metra passes for transportation to treatment.
