Nearly 50 supporters of Heather’s House, Aid for Women came to the Butterfield Country Club in Oak Brook on May 15 to show support and raise money for the 35-year-old organization aimed at offering support for women with unplanned pregnancies.
Aid for Women operates a residential program in Des Plaines for expectant mothers, new moms and their children. Over its tenure, AFW has provided support to thousands of women. The mission of AFW’s residential program is to support women by offering them and their children a safe and secure home while providing life skills and educational opportunities to foster financial independence.
The committee’s goal for the event was to raise $42,000 for Heather’s House.
