Swoon’s Silent Auction for Almost Home Kids a Big Success

Earlier this month, Swooners got together to host a silent auction to benefit a really great cause. We raised over $13,000 for Almost Home Kids, a charitable organization that provides transitional care in a home-like setting for children with complicated health needs.

Swoon had a lot of help from some great sponsors, including: Gucci, Saks, CareerBuilder, Courtyard Marriott, Cellcosmet, Lagunitas, Headquarters Beercade, Wirtz Beverage, Chicago Fire (TV show), GT Fish and Oyster, Chicago PD (TV show), and Pure Glow.

Everyone was eager to help out such a great local cause. “It’s about enriching the communities we serve, and about teaming up with other like-minded organizations to do something meaningful and creative that has impact,” said Swoon CEO Michelle Baker, “And we always manage to have some fun in the process.” Fellow Swooner

Michael Blachut exclaimed, “It just got a lot cooler to like my already-favorite show, Chicago Fire” after winning an auction for a signed poster from the cast of the hit TV show.

Almost Home Kids helps out kids with complex medical needs but also helps their family adjust to their new lives and unique challenges. They are looking to expand to different communities. If you are interested in learning more about their expansion plans, or consulting services and would like to talk with them about bringing Almost Home Kids to your area, please email Lori Hannon, AHK’s Business Development & Strategy Director atlhannon@almosthomekids.org or call (630) 272-2600.
