More than 200 filled the ballroom of the Union League Club in Chicago on the evening of October 22, as the Clarendon Hills Auxiliary Chapter of the Infant Welfare Society (IWS) of Chicago celebrated their 100th year. The Clarendon Hills Auxiliary is made up of 35 women who volunteer their time each year to improve the lives of Chicago’s neediest women and children. Since 1911, the IWS has provided health care and supportive services to women, infants, and children in medically underserved communities. The lively evening saw cocktails, dinner, live and silent auction, and dancing to the Al Sofia Orchestra. A stirring performance featuring the bagpipes and drums from the Emerald Society welcomed supporters to dinner. Pam Diltz serves as President, and Jackie Anglin and Melanie Tatum served as the event co-chairs. More than $100,000 was raised toward providing medical, dental, educational, and mental health services to more than 18,000 women and children.
