The Occasion: More than 400 supporters of the North Shore Board of the Northwestern University Settlement House crowded the ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago for an unforgettable evening of friends and fund-raising.
The Highlights: ABC 7 anchor and longtime Glitter Ball auctioneer Ron Magers commanded the room by leading a spirited game of Heads or Tails, as well as the live auction and paddle raise.
The VIPs: Barbie Myers serves as the North Shore Board president, and Ginny Burnstine, Kate McBreen, and Linda O’Toole served as event co-chairs.
The Final Tally: More than $450,000 was raised to send 400 low-income Chicago children to the House in the Wood Camp in Delavan, Wisconsin, promising to develop self-confidence, teamwork, conflict resolution skills, and personal discipline during their summer stay. nush.org
