Art and Wine Night II was special for a lot of reasons. Every time we dine at the Blissful Banana Cafe in Orland Park we remember how much Julia liked to eat there, too. She enjoyed the food with family and friends alike, and knowing that we have special memories of Julia at the BBC made it all that much more special during our Julia’s Legacy of Hope / Cure It fundraiser.
For the second time Summit Hill District 161 art teacher Joanna Maas donated her time and expertise so that all of our painters made beautiful and personally meaningful pieces of art. The room was filled with family, friends, colleagues, students and ex-students. Of course the evening raised a lot of money for childhood cancer research and comforting kids with cancer, which is exactly what Julia wanted.
