Our 51st Annual Antiques & Treasures in the Field, Sunday, September 9th was a huge success. On a beautiful sunny day, more than 1400 attendees explored what our unique vendors had to offer, scoured the Treasures Tent, sampled our wonderful bake sale goodies, had lunch from the grill and bought raffle tickets all supporting Infant Welfare. Many thanks to; Jerry Isikoff (pictured below) who arrived very early on Sunday morning to help with the heavy lifting in the Treasures Tent, our enthusiastic board and junior board members and the generosity of all our donors, especially Anna Schuster who supports us year-round with an Infant Welfare booth at her store, Anna’s Mostly Mahogany. So far this year the booth has collected more than $11,000.
Our Junior Board is moving full steam ahead. The new group of 13 members between the ages of 10-15 met this summer at the Winter Club to get to know each other and organize for raffle ticket selling (pictured) and helped out at our annual Antiques in the Field. Next on their agenda is a diaper drive with plans to proudly deliver their donations to the Clinic.

This Fall come visit the IWS booth at Anna’s Mostly Mahogany in Highwood. There are always great finds and your purchases from the booth go directly to IWS!
