Community Services Needs Your Help

Kristi Casale, CMP, DMCP, The Greater Midwest Chapter Community Services Committee

We are still looking for donations to the Annual Bowl-a-Thon’s Silent Auction! This is our chapter’s biggest fundraiser of the year with 95% of the proceeds going to our charity, Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly. Our goal is to collect more donations than we’ve ever had, raising more this year for our charity than ever before. Without the support of partners like you, this event would not be possible. We’re asking that all donations are sent in by Oct. 1 so please be sure to send your form in to us today! In order to do this we need more of the following:

  • Restaurants – not just limited to Chicago!
  • Entertainment/Sporting Events (theater, movies, games)
  • Activity based (bikes, segway tours, boat tours)
  • Cultural (museums, architectural tours)
What we need from you now: Please consider donating an item, basket or package today! Click here for the donation form!

New this year at Bowl-A-Thon – Wine Pull!

The Wine Pull is an exciting addition to this year’s Bowl-A-Thon! Purchase a ticket along with your registration to go home with a bottle or two of wine. The best part? Tickets only cost $10 and you could walk away with that bottle of red you’ve been coveting but can’t bring yourself to buy!
