Thank you A. Perry, Northwestern Settlement and Team Make It Better

Thank you A. Perry Homes, Northwestern Settlement and Make It Better stars for a relationship that is a growing circle of good.

Tony Perry, Katie Taylor and Ron Manderscheid

Above are Tony Perry (A. Perry Homes President), Katie Taylor and Ron Manderscheid of Northwestern Settlement at last night’s Wine and Warmth, in the Winnetka A. Perry showroom, where guests contributed over 200 winter coats and A. Perry contributed a $5000 check to the Settlement.

Katie fought tears as she told about a four-year old girl who received new boots and coat from the Wine and Warmth gathering six weeks ago. The girl said she had never felt so warm and that she didn’t ever want to take the boots off.

No child should ever be that unprotected in Chicago’s winter!

I particularly thank Make It Better’s Julie Carter, Sandra Miller and Michelle Weiss for developing the A. Perry, Northwestern Settlement, Make It Better relationship. These amazing women work miracles, ever growing the number of lives made better by their efforts!

The Kiss & a Gorgeous Catsby CEO at the Lincoln Park Zoo

Thank you Lincoln Park Zoo Women’s Board for Zoo Ball 2012: The Great Gatsby. It was an amazing night dancing and dining under the stars, with and for the animals, to the music of The Village People. (Think “YMCA” and “Macho, Macho Man”). Make It Better is proud of our growing partnership and this event’s media sponsorship.

And we’re also proud of our stunning CEO & Publisher, Kimberly Carroll, who attended with her brilliant Gatsbyesque professor husband, Rob.

As always, our Director of Community Development, Sandra Miller, deserves a big kiss for her work bringing this partnership to life. And she got it here from her handsome husband, Eric.
