Our December 7th holiday mixer was held at Moretti's in Hoffman Estates.  The Chicago Northwest CPCU Chapter partnered with Lycie Borkenhagen and her Lots of Love charitable project.  Toys, books, and games were collected for Shriner's Children's Hospital.  Lycie is a junior at Conant High School in Schaumburg.  She has been collecting toys for children since she was in 5th grade.  She got this idea because she felt it was important to put a smile on the face of all kids when they were in the hospital.  The toys are not only distributed to children during the holidays but also after they have had a surgery or had a chemo treatment or other medical procedure.  Our group collected over 150 items and $170 in monetary donations.  The event was so successful that we will probably do this again in December 2017!  Thank you to everyone who contributed!
