Event description

Description

Family and Friends,

We are pleased to announce that the second b
iennial Lou's Crew event will be held October 8th, 2017 at Colletti's Restaurant in Chicago. This year, Lou's Crew will hopefully coincide with a postseason MLB game and will feature a delicious meal, cash bar, and raffling off many auction items (see below). Cost to attend the event is $25.00 per person.

We truly appreciate anyone who can attend, or donate ahead of time for this fundraiser. Helping Lou's Crew will make a significant impact on the health, education, and welfare of children within our local community.

The Louis Blumenfeld Fund was established in memory of Louis Blumenfeld. Louis was born in 1992 with a congenital heart defect. His tragic and untimely death in 2006 left an imprint on everyone who was lucky enough to have known him. Louis was a true leader and role model for others. He possessed a positive attitude and demonstrated kindness towards all individuals with whom he came in contact. In order to participate in Fairview athletics and extracurricular clubs, Louis overcame medical and physical obstacles. His life example teaches us to focus on our talents and gifts, and not dwell on our limitations or setbacks. He taught us to strive toward accomplishments, and always reach to achieve our goals.

Lou's Crew proceeds will benefit the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, specifically pediatric Heart Center Research. Proceeds will also benefit the Louis M. Blumenfeld Triumph of the Spirit Award. This award fosters awareness and respect for ethical behavior in a leadership role among students. This award is granted every May to one or more eighth grade students at Fairview South School in Skokie.

The event will offer several raffle prizes with lots of restaurant and retail store gift cards, liquor baskets and other baskets filled with all sorts of fun things, and many other great raffle prizes. Get in the raffle!

For any additional information on the event itself, how to donate, or interest in volunteering, please let any of the hosts know and we will be happy to help :)

Thank you all for your love and support,
Nancy Blumenfeld, Ellen Blumenfeld, Laura Toigo, Zach Richardson, Ron Blumenfeld and Sue Blumenfeld
