PHOTO GALLERY: Kids' Heart of Glenview Benefits Local Charities
"Dinner and a Movie" night gives families an opportunity to show their support for area charities.
Around 1,500 people gathered at the Glen 10 Theater Monday night for the Glenview Giving Foundations' Kids' Heart of Glenview event. The event — which raises money for nine local charities— paired "Dinner and a Movie," showcasing fine dining from a bevy of local restaurants including Ra Sushi, The Glen Club, Cookies by Design, Ted's Montana Grill and others
Chris Krueger, founder of the Heart of Glenview events, played emcee for the evening and auctioned off a large assortment of gift baskets and artful wooden hearts painted by area students and charities.
For the second year in a row, Viking Cooking School donated its chefs' time and skill to make cakes for the event. To help with the cakes, students from local schools including Glenbrook South, attended cake-making seminars throughout the month.
Money raised from the "Dinner and a Movie" event will benefit nine local charities: Clearbrook, Family Service Center, Glenkirk, Perk Center Cafe, the Josselyn Center, Sister Paulanne's Needy Fund, Wesley Child Care, and Youth Services of Glenview/Northbrook.
