Members and friends of the Clarendon Hills Auxiliary Chapter of the Infant Welfare Society gathered at the Union League Club of Chicago for their appropriately-themed Snow Ball Gala on Jan. 25.
The event attracted 255 guests who braved the weather to raise a glass and raise funds in honor of the cause.
Guests enjoyed cocktails and dinner in the beautiful, art-filled room at the Club.
The evening included a silent auction that featured packages of specialty-brew beer and wine and in-home dinner parties plus a live auction, as well as a performance art show by Elliot from Artbeat Live and dancing to the Al Sophia Band.
Clarendon Hills Infant Welfare Society President Suzanne Austin, Co-chairwomen Megan Caplis and Jessica Cooper and the CEO of the Infant Welfare Society Robin McGinnis all spoke about the mission and purpose of the Society.
The event raised more than $80,000, all of which will go directly to the Infant Welfare Clinic to help support its programs. The clinic helps more than 13,000 women and children every year with medical, dental, optometric and mental health services.
