Just a quick note for those of you that have signed up for our upcoming Texas Hold’em fundraiser. We are continuing to plan for the event; however, should our venue cancel due to the impending healthcare situation, we will be cancelling the event.

For those who have paid in advance we will issue a refund, less the PayPal fees they charge. We are closely monitoring the situation and guidance from both the CDC and Governor. We will keep you posted on the status of the event. We thank you for your continued support!

Stay Healthy

Thank you to Jay Riggio, Chuck Pierce, and Tim Pierce for the unique and plenty donations from 3 Floyds Brewpub in Munster, Indiana, Tom Pierce for the astounding beers from New Glarus Brewing from Wisconsin, and Dan Kuczero with the tremendous variety of beers from Keweenaw Brewing Company in Houghton, Michigan.

There were wonderful raffle prizes donated from The Chicago Improve Comedy Club, Suzie Rizek from Naperville's Remax office, Stephanie Guttas, and beautiful etched glasses from Trish Niewoehner.

This year was special in our hearts as we took time to remember Kathleen by honoring her while keeping the passion of this event alive in her home.

The highlight of the night was presenting a check for $30,000 to Camp One Step!

Thank you to everyone who supported, attended and especially to those who donated their time and resources to making this event a success.
