ANAD Fundraiser, February 2011
Despite a forecast for a winter storm, many braved the weather and gathered at the NV Penthouse in Chicago to enjoy comedy and raise money for ANAD. Chairperson Michelle Niemiec pulled together catered food, gift bags, cupcakes and a comedian for an evening of laughter! We look forward to another fun event that networks individuals and raises funds for our cause. Emcee Lauren Strec invites testimonies from the visitors. The last photo is our chairperson Michelle relaxing with her husband, Brian. Thank you for all your hard work Michelle!
