Our Naperville “No Show” gala was a roaring success, with almost $50,000 raised for Almost Home Kids!!
2021 has been another year when the pandemic changed our event plans and once again, we needed to get creative. The event committee was co-chaired by Bethany Keown, Kathy Wennerstrum and Yonhee Gordon and we were joined by Stacie Gannon, Erin LaMantia, Terry Gallagher, Suzy Shinkle and Jeff Brown – thank you to everyone who served on the committee and for coming up with this cool concept that keeps everyone safe AND raises much-needed funds for Almost Home Kids!!
This year you literally didn’t have to do anything to have a huge impact at AHK – No babysitter fees?! No new dress, no new suit! Just the willingness to support AHK.
Thank you to everyone who purchased a “ticket” and a huge thank you to our sponsors:
– Mullarkey Associates,
– ECI Build,
– MAC RX,
– The Pluchar Group,
– JMG Financial Group,
– HUB International,
– 5/3rd bank
Everyone who participated in supporting the event was eligible for our amazing Door Prize!! and potentially taking a well-deserved vacation: Round Trip airfare for 2 anywhere in continental US + $3000 Airbnb gift card + $750 gift card for Away luggage – and we were thrilled when Marilyn Berg’s name was the one drawn.
In 2022, we do want you to show up: save the date for our much anticipated “Crosstown Classic gala” on April 22, 2022 at the Hyatt Lodge in Oak Brook – more details will be posted soon.
