Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our 35th Anniversary Celebration dinner! We are happy to say we surpassed our goal of $50,000 by raising more than $62,000 for our mission.
Thank you all for your support and for making the event a success. We had more than 250 attendees who enjoyed our silent auction, mystery bags and our Create A Smile live auction.
We presented Outstanding Service Awards to seven individuals and families. Executive Director Mary Fete made a beautiful tribute to the Joliet Woman’s Club for their many years of support and to the Meier family in memory of Bev Meier, our very first employee and dear friend.
We thank our Chair, Ruth Geismar, and Celebration Dinner Committee members, Evelyn Randall and Christine Throm, for their hard work and dedication in the planning of this event.
We give much thanks to our Founder’s Circle Sponsor, Oracle America, Inc. and to Gold Sponsor, the Vora family. To all of you, thank you, thank you, thank you!
