For the second year in a row, supporters of The Hinsdale Auxiliary of Children’s Home + Aid gathered to celebrate the season and help out those less fortunate. More than 100 packed into the Green Goddess Boutique in downtown Hinsdale on December 7, all bearing gifts for children ages 0-5. The generosity didn’t end there: The Green Goddess donated 20 percent of all its sales to Illinois Children’s Home + Aid. Hors d’oeuvres were served and wine flowed as guests shopped the sustainably chic and eco-friendly selections. Christie Helm and Kristen Meyers, both of Hinsdale, served as co-chairs for the event. Alyssa Guido serves as board chair and Laura Heiberger as president. The group serves young children and parents with vital needs in neighborhood facilities throughout Chicagoland.
