Benefit Dinner for Chicago Victims - Attn SIUC graduates & IL residents....

  1. I don't know how many people there are, if any, alumni from SIUC - however I know I've seen some people from the Northern Illinois area.

    For those that are able, there is a benefit planned on May 20, 2007 in the Rockford, Illinois area for the families and those left behind from this horrible tragedy. The thing the keeps pulling at my heart, is the son that was left behind without his mother - so I'm trying to figure out what I can do from where I'm at right now. For those that may be in the area on this day, I know the families would appreciate any support from the SIUC community, to remember these charismatic individuals.

    I thought I would post, as I'm not sure how much local press this event is getting in Illinois, but I know that for those who have relocated outside of IL now, there hasn't been any coverage that I know of - I wasn't aware until some college friends tracked me down a few weeks ago. Coverage included below, thanks for reading....
