Anytime Ellen O’Connor or her daughter, Elizabeth O’Connor Cole, recommend or chair something, I know it’s going to be very worthwhile.
Last week’s luncheon benefiting the Chicago Children’s Theatre at the Casino Club, which Elizabeth co-chaired with Lyn Lockwood Murphy, was no exception, because of the featured speaker, Marc Kielburger. He inspired every mother in the audience to help her children become cooler and more successful at all things in life, by caring about and trying to help other kids who are not as fortunate.
The organizations founded by Marc and his brother, Craig – Save The Children, http://www.freethechildren.com, and Me To We, http://www.metowe.com – have built over 500 schools internationally, provide meaningful service opportunities, and connect philanthropists with good causes worldwide.
to be inspired too.
