The Downers Grove Chapter held another successful benefit, “Come Sail Away”, on Sunday, September 10th on the Spirit of Chicago. Guests were treated to a 2 hour Lake Michigan skyline cruise off of Navy Pier.

Guests were greeted with a champagne toast and enjoyed a luscious brunch buffet. The Grand Raffle included a $1,000 grand prize, a night in Chicago for two with dinner, and car detailing. Silent auction items were fabulous, with Cubs, Blackhawk, and Hamilton tickets as well as cooking classes, hotel stays, restaurant certificates, and other gift baskets.
