Daybreak Youth Services, a nonprofit provider of adolescent addiction and mental health treatment services in Washington state, raised more than $125,000 during its annual fundraising gala for Spokane this month at the Northern Quest Resort and Casino.
Nearly 300 people attended the 1970s-themed “Disco for Daybreak” on Friday, May 4. Proceeds from the event will support the mission of Daybreak Youth Services, to promote involved, healthy communities by offering hope and recovery solutions to youth and their families struggling with addiction, trauma and mental health issues.
“Thanks to our generous donors, sponsors and community partners, we’re now in a position to grow our life-enriching Paths to Prosperity program in Spokane, which connects the teens at Daybreak to an array of recreational and vocational activities and helps them develop a love for clean and sober living,” said Annette Klinefelter, CEO of Daybreak Youth Services. “Additionally, we’ll be able to bring much-needed computer supplies to the Daybreak school, strengthen our scholarship program, and build a sensory room to assist clients during their healing journey.”

The Bergquist Foundation; Coplin Family Fund; Kalispel Tribe; Northern Quest Resort and Casino; Dr. Neil & Dawn Warroll; Scott & Vicki Jones; Julia Klaue Preston Foundation; The Emerging Leaders Society, Young Lawyers Division; Spokane Young Professionals; Star Financial; US Bank; Spokane Federal Credit Union; Carl Griffin & Chancellor Christine Johnson; Northwest Farm Credit Services; Columbia Surgical; Hart Capital Management; Meridian Construction; BDO USA, LLC; Washington Trust Bank; Cravens Coffee; Great Floors; Itron; La Rive Luxury Day Spa; Project Beauty Share; and Evco Sound & Electronics.
