2nd Annual Giving Hope Through Stories Event - February 22nd, 2014 at City Gate Grille
This event featured the reveal of our Hope video compiled of clips and photos from all of the charities that we have filmed to date as well as the story of the Max Lacewell Foundation told by David Lacewell. Truly an inspiring and fun night. We raised over $21,000, which will be used to tell our charity partners' stories as well as run our Coffee Campaign Crew. Thanks to all that attended!
Zumbathon for the Community - iShimmy, iShake, iSuport - Benefited ISC, Naperville CARES, Naperville Area Humane Society, KidsMatter and the Max Lacewell Foundation!
Sunday September 8th, we held the first ever Zumbathon for the Community. This event was so much fun! The Zumba instructors were incredible and everyone (never tried it, to novice, to watcher) had a great time. We raised over $2,000 for charity and cannot wait to have the event again next year!
