18th Annual Outreach Benefit Success!

Written by: Julianne Beck

At our 18th Annual Outreach Benefit, members and friends of Kenilworth Union Church gathered at the Michigan Shores Club on April 21 to raise funds for the Church’s Outreach program. Some 290 guests gathered in support of 40 benevolence agencies were sponsored by Kenilworth Union Church.

Our Co-Chairs Elizabeth Bigelow and Marcia Hines hosted the event that included a wine cork pull, silent auction, live auction, raffle drawing and paddle raise. There were special appearances made by representatives of three agencies supported by the Church: Lawrence Hall Youth Services, Center for Abused Women and their Children, (CAWC) and Hillside Food Pantry.

Opportunities to volunteer or donate to supported agencies through Kenilworth Union are available year-round. All church-funded agencies support education and child-centered services, emergency services, health care, including mental health or community services primarily in the Chicago area.
