St. Monica's celebrated it's members and supporters with awards, lunch, and the loads of handmade, designer pillows.

With the help of volunteers, the pillows were donated and sold to raise money for St. Monica's.

The organization supports women and their families with addiction and mental health issues.

Sherry Schock got help from St. Monica's years ago. Today, she received the "courage award," and says it's important to show support for the place that saved her life.

 "It's important to be able to give back a little bit. I went to St. Monica's 27-years-ago and I believe it gave me a second chance at life."

Event organizers says all of the $5,300 raised by the pillow sales will go directly to St. Monica's.
