Chicago Takes Heart Event Highlights!

September 30, 2015

The Chicago Takes Heart – Teaming Up for Research event took place on Friday September 25 at 19 S. LaSalle in downtown Chicago from 11am – 2pm. Mascots Southpaw (White Sox) and Tommy Hawk (Blackhawks) made an appearance to sign autographs and take pictures. Raffle prizes were donated by local merchants. A great time was had by all while raising awareness and money for research.

Thank you to Carol Zich and the SCAD survivors Karen Butterfield, Margie Maricich & Shelley Coop Simonton and Michelle Willman for making the Chicago takes Heart event a success. Thank you to Carol and Keith Retterer, building manager from Colonnade Management, Inc. for their hard work organizing the Chicago takes Heart event. We truly appreciate Keith who approached us about doing a fundraiser for SCAD Research, Inc. and for Carol who said “yes” to the opportunity!

A special thank you to Colonnade Management Inc. for sponsoring this fun event.
