The El Paso Child Guidance Center (Center) is fired up and ready with its largest fundraising event of the year. Tracy Yellen, Chief Executive Officer of the Paso del Norte Health Foundation and the Paso del Norte Community Foundation, will be roasted in the presence of friends and colleagues for an evening of lighthearted humor and entertainment.

El Paso Country Club

Tickets are $175 per person or $1,500 for a table of 10. Various sponsorship levels are available.

All proceeds benefit the Center to provide mental health services such as therapy, child psychiatry, coordinated mental health care, and mental health education to children and families in El Paso. No client is turned away due to an inability to pay.

“Aside from the sheer fear of being roasted, I am honored to take a turn in the hot seat to support the important work of the El Paso Child Guidance Center, a leader in mental health education and trauma-informed care in our community,” says Tracy Yellen. “I invite all my colleagues and friends to join us for a fun night to help the Center expand its impact and reach.”

Since 1954, the El Paso Child Guidance Center has had a long-standing tradition of providing high-quality outpatient mental health services for children and families, including psychiatric evaluations; individual, family, and group therapy; case management; and mental health education and advocacy.
