6th Annual Dinner/Fashion a Huge Success for Pantry

The 6th and final Dinner/Fashion Show at Casa Royale, benefitting the Self Help Closet and Pantry, was held October 11, 2012. This has been our only BIG fundraiser for the year for the past 6 years. In addition to the delicious meal served by Casa Royale, there was a large and delightful array of item on the raffle tables in the hallway and many wonderful silent auction items in the banquet room. The fashions were provided by Dress Barn in Mt. Prospect Plaza. A good time was had by all!  Our grandest thanks go out to Patty O'Brien and her committee (and her husband Pat) for all their hard work on this tremendous event for the past 6 years. Patty and her husband don't even live in Des Plaines, but they work so hard for us. This year this event raised $8500 for the Pantry. Thanks you to all who attended and to all those who contributed money or items for the raffle and silent auction tables. And thank you to AlphaGraphics for donating the printing of the programs for this event.
