More than 200 men and women donned festive hats and garb in the American tradition of the 138th running of “the greatest two minutes in sports.” Nancy Newell of Hinsdale was awarded with the first annual “Help, Hope, and Opportunity” Award, and Alyssa Guido, Lee Gillman, Lara Heiberger, and Lauri Sarver, all from Hinsdale, served on the event committee. More than $75,000 was raised for the organization’s long-standing support of Children’s Home + Aid, a leading child and family service agency helping to shape public policy on child welfare. Each year, the organization protects, educates, and counsels more than 40,000 children, youth, and young families.
