Rotary Donates Festiville Funds
The Rotary Club of Naperville is donating $40,000 from its Festiville fundraiser to local charities. Compassionate Communities for Children Reclaim 13, Family Shelter Service, Teen Parent Connection, and CASA of DuPage County were chosen to receive the donations. Some of the proceeds from the event will also go toward the newly opened Rotary Harmony Park.
Gold Coin Donated
An anonymous donor has been leaving gold coins in Salvation Army kettles across the Chicago suburbs, including Naperville. A South African Krugerrand valued at over $1200 was left in a kettle outside Casey’s Foods. That joins at least eight other gold coins already donated this year across Chicagoland. Funds raised by Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign help provide food and shelter to families in need.
High School Bowling Benefits Special Olympics
A crosstown rivalry will serve a greater purpose tonight when Naperville North and Naperville Central square off in boy’s bowling. The teams have asked for donations to benefit the Special Olympics Bowling Program. Flat donations are welcome, but to make things a little extra fun, you can donate per pin or per strike tallied in the match. The event will be held at Lisle Lanes at 4 p.m. and the fundraiser is in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Special Olympics.
More Success for North Runner
One week after finishing in seventh at the Nike Cross Country nationals, and a month after winning state with her team for a third straight season, Naperville North senior runner Alex Morris continued her outstanding fall season by finishing 15th at the Foot Locker National Championship in San Diego. The top 15 finish earned her the final All-American spot. Morris is the third All-American for the Huskies in the last four seasons to go with Sarah Schmitt last season and Judy Pendergast in 2015.
