Thank You to All Who Helped!

Thank You to All Who Helped!

Saturday, February 18 brought a sea of pink to Herrick Middle School for HGNA'S 12th Annual Chick Chat.  Over 350 girls attended, and co-chairs Colleen Loftus and Carla Giannelli, and their amazing team of volunteers, made the day seamless!  We were pleased to thank The Grove Foundation for their 10 years of supporting Chick Chat, and thankful to the Downers Grove Junior Woman's Club for their generous support of our 2017 Parent Series, which included our Mom and Dad Chat, which was held concurrently, and reached over 100 parents that morning!  WHAT AN AMAZING DAY TO BE A GIRL!!!
