Thank you for fundraising assistance
The Rackettes Team – comprised of Chris Williams, breast cancer survivor, Colette Kurtz and Geri Kleinprinz – would like to express a heartfelt thank you to those who came to support us and several businesses who contributed to the fundraising event on April 21 at Alessandria’s Italian Restaurant (Edgebrook). The fundraiser brought in more than $3,000 toward the Avon Foundation for Women sponsoring the two-day breast cancer walk in Chicago on June 2 and 3.
Several businesses contributed items for our raffle drawing and silent auction. There were more than 100 raffle items and more than 20 silent auction items. A huge thank you goes to Francisco at Alessandria’s for working with us to have this event at the restaurant.
Jan Way of Char-Lee Originals made a limited edition Breast Cancer Awareness Angel with half the proceeds going to the Avon Foundation for Women. There are still some angels available for purchase by contacting Char-Lee Originals.
Talk of the Town Swing Band and Col. Boyd’s Dixie Band entertained throughout the afternoon with their wonderful music.
