WHAT CAN HAPPEN WITH THE POWER OF COLLECTIVE GIVING?
When you donate $100 to a charity, you wonder if you're making a difference. But when 100 people donate $100 at the same time, they raise $10,000 for a worthy cause. That's impact. And it only takes an hour.
No volunteering, no telemarketing, no event planning, no silent auction donations to solicit. Simply a great way to give back right in our own community. Come join with us.
THIS IS PERFECT FOR YOU IF:
And all you need to do is give $100 and one hour of your time four times a year.
NEW NOVEMBER MEETING DATE, NEW VENUE
Date Change: Because our November meeting was scheduled for November 8th (Election Day!) we have moved the meeting forward one week. Our next meeting will be Tuesday, November 15th. Remember to get out and vote!
Location Change: After three years of graciously hosting our group, Philly G's is (sadly) closing. Our new venue will be Half Day Brewing Company (formerly Flatlanders) located across from Walgreens in Lincolnshire (near intersection of Olde Half Day Rd and Milwaukee). We will set up in the private room in the back. The full menu will be available starting at 6:00 pm; the official meeting will run per usual 7:00-8:00pm. There is lots of parking available at this venue.
"CASA OF LAKE COUNTY" AWARDED $13,600
CASA of Lake County, presented by member Suzanne Wexler, was our awarded charity at our August 2016 meeting. CASA, or "Court Appointed Special Advocates" advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children within the juvenile court system. A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is a trained citizen who is appointed by a judge to represent the best interests of a child in court.
Two other worthy causes were presented as well. Betsy Phillips told us about The Cancer Wellness Center, and Nancy Napalo shared Angles.
Three people from the Preservation Foundation of the Lake County Forest Preserve discussed how our $14,800 donation helped their Green Youth Farm project.
LARGEST AWARD TO DATE: $14,800
