Our November Chapter benefit was a huge success. It
was held at Cooper’s Hawk in Arlington Heights and included wonderful appetizers, an open bar with cocktails, all of the Cooper’s Hawk wines, a delicious filet and chicken dinner, and a fabulous band that played 60’s music and had everyone dancing until the very end. We raised $23,000
for the Clinic and are definitely considering a repeat of this benefit for September 2020!
Several members attended our annual Holiday luncheon at Butterfield Country Club courtesy of our very generous members, Vicki Grossestreuer and Joni Benson.
