BENEFITING: EASTERN ILLINOIS FOODBANK

EVENT: Prom Benefit 2016

EVENT DATE: Mar 12, 2016

THE STORY:

Hometown: Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

Career: On sabbatical from teaching at Parkland College. (That's a fancy way of saying I took some time off after my 3rd baby was born and haven't yet jumped back into the world of academics.) 

Family: Happily married since 1998, my husband Jeff and I have 3 crazies together - Keira (7), Caden (6), and Zoey (1).

Prom Memory: I had the privilege of attending my senior prom on the arm of my future husband. Nope, I definitely wasn't crowned prom queen that night. And I sure don't deserve such a high honor [wink] 20 years post-high school either, but I'd be psyched to raise a ton of money and make a tangible impact in the lives of many, so please "vote" for me with lots and lots of dollars!

Most Impactful Moment: While in Mexico on mission trip, our team had the opportunity to serve sandwiches and fresh water to hundreds of people at a garbage dump. These kind and hard-working men and women spent upwards of 10 hours/day rummaging through trash to collect anything of value. It was equally heartbreaking and hope-giving. The idea that anyone in the world ever has to feel the level of desperation I witnessed is maddening. But like that memorable day, I am hopeful that we can make a difference in the world, starting with our own community. 

Call-to-action: Please partner with me by giving what you can to bless individuals and families in the Champaign-Urbana area. Whether it's $10 or $500, your generosity will truly bless someone in need.
