Paula Black to serve as honorary chair of Click! fundraiser for International Bipolar Foundation

The International Bipolar Foundation will once again hold its annual Click! fundraiser, but this year with Paula Black at the helm as honorary chair.

The event will be held on Friday, Feb. 24, from 6-10 p.m. at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in the Mission Tower.

Black joined the board of directors of IBPF back in August and jumped right in to help. “She has been supportive of our mission since before her appointment to the board,” says Muffy Walker, founder and president of the nonprofit.

Black has been instrumental in helping the organization hire a development officer and now will help with its biggest fundraiser of the year.

Click! is a fast-paced, fun “game show,” where guests compete on teams to win the much- coveted Click! Award. In addition to delectable food stations, including ahi and sirloin sliders and ‘shawarma’ (Middle Eastern delicacies), a full bar with the famed Clickmopolitan is included. After dining, guests move into the uber-cool game room and get ready to answer trivia questions, perform silly antics on stage, and bid for priceless items in the silent and live auctions.

Each year at Click!, IBPF presents awards to those who have bipolar disorder who see beyond the illness and can imagine a future free of barriers, stigma, and discrimination. The recipient empowers others by sharing their story, instilling hope and inspiration. Although the name of this year’s recipient can’t be revealed right now, here is a hint: think famous television actor!

The Click! Committee, including Debbie Torbati, Susan Berger, Ashley Reitzin, Muffy Walker, and Honorary Chair Paula Black, have been busy securing fabulous auction items, such as a week stay each in Deer Valley; Lake Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; and Abaco Island, Bahamas; an eight-week internship with Dr. John C. Reed, co-chair of the organization’s Scientific Advisory Board; a Kentucky Derby luncheon for 20…the list goes on and on.
