SPRING LAKE TWP. — TCM Counseling’s third annual “A Night at the Derby” fundraiser raised more than $70,000 for the organization.

Held May 4 in conjunction with the Kentucky Derby, more than 250 people gathered at Spring Lake Country Club, decked out in their derby best.

While the evening was filled with Derby-themed fun, including prizes for picking the winning horses and trophies for “Best Hat” and “Dapper Dan,” important funds were raised for TCM Counseling’s mental health services, school outreach program and suicide prevention.

“This event is so special because it provides essential funding so TCM may continue our commitment to never turn anyone away in Ottawa County,” TCM Executive Director Sarah Lewakowski said. “The demand for accessible and affordable mental health services increases daily. The funds and awareness raised at our event will literally help hundreds of people from our community to access the help that they need.”

TCM Counseling is already looking forward to its fourth annual “Night at the Derby,” which is set for May 2, 2020. Anyone interested in acting as a sponsor, or if you’d like more information, should contact Ann Baarman at 616-842-9160.
