I spent an enjoyable evening last night, with the folks from Southwest Community Services (SCS), of Tinley Park.  The fundraiser, called “Ladies Night Out,” was held at Eye 4 Style in Burr Ridge, which was packed with jewelry, handbags and accessories of various sorts.  It was fun, and it was great to know that all our purchases helped support the important services that SCS offers.  If you are a nonprofit looking for fundraising ideas, you might want to consider Eye 4 Style.

The Cause

Southwest Community Services offers vocational rehabilitation training for adults with developmental disabilities, psychological serices and employment skills training for adults, as well as individualized occupational, speech and physical therapy/rehabilitation services for children and adults.

As you can imagine, with so many programs and services, and with the recent cuts in funding, they could use volunteers to get involved and help out, even if it’s just for a couple of hours per week.  To volunteer, please call Marcia Kennedy at 708-429-1260.

Thank You

SCS accepts Medicaid, which I do not.  So I occasionally send referrals their way.  I’m thankful to have a great group of caring people nearby, who offer such a variety of services.

I want to say thank you to everyone involved at Southwest Community Services.  You are very important members of the Tinley Park Community.  And thank you to Sandy Sorrentino-Bookhout for inviting me to this event.
