City employees are hosting a bake sale and raffle on October 26 to benefit the Kane County Specialty Courts Foundation. Cookies, cupcakes, brownies, pies, caramel apples, and more made by City employees will all be available for sale in the Municipal Building lobby from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Raffle tickets will also be sold for $3 each for a chance to win 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, and Veterans Treatment Court. These courts provide an alternative to incarceration for defendants whose criminal behavior is linked to drug abuse or mental health disorders.
The Kane County Specialty Courts Foundation raises funds to help pay for items used as rewards for modifying defendants’ behavior. Items purchased include gift cards, educational and medical expenses, and bus and Metra passes for transportation to treatment.
