Under the Stars


The Parkways Foundation Committee for Children with Disabilities celebrated a successful beginning in style with its inaugural gala, Dancing Under the Stars. Formed in March 2007, the committee, which is the philanthropic arm of the Chicago Park District, provides the first ever free adaptive camp for disabled children in Chicago.
Co-chaired by Helen Brown and Mary Beth Smith, the gala featured the Matt Reed Band and a performance by Dance Chicago. In addition, CBS-2's Jay Levine was the Auctioneer Extraordinaire and auctioned off such fabulous prizes as a trip to Cortona, Italy. The gala raised $85,00 and met the committee's goal of supporting three free adaptive camps for disabled children in Chicago.
