2017 Holiday Party
In 2017 our holiday spectacular,“Splendor of the Season-A Jack and Jill Holiday Celebration” was celebrated with the families and friends of the South Suburban Chicago Chapter Mother Members on Sunday, December 3, 2017 at Olympia Fields Country Club in Olympia Fields, Illinois. Guests, dressed in “holiday chic” attire, were immersed in the spirit of the holiday season as soon as they entered the venue. From the Carolers to the beautiful holiday decorations, the tone was set for a wonderful afternoon. Santa made his debut to the delight of the children and families took their annual holiday family portraits. One of the highlights of the event was the Children’s Parade. After guests were welcomed into the banquet room, our children were brought in by their age groups so that everyone could see how beautiful they looked in their holiday best.
After a wonderful lunch and exciting program complete with entertainment, presentations and surprises, the children were welcomed into the “Fun Zone!!” In the Fun Zone, they experienced craft/activity stations, magic performed by an awesome magician, a photo booth, DJ and dancing. There was fun for everyone in the “Fun Zone.”
This party also had a purpose. Through our community service component, “The Magic Toy Box,” South Suburban Chicago Chapter Moms donated a toy or gift card, and our guests brought a youth-appropriate book. All toys and gift cards were given to children at the Ford Heights Boys & Girls Club. As we support youth literacy, the books will help build a reading corner for the children of the Boys & Girls Club.
2016 Holiday Party
In 2016 our Holiday Party was held on December 4th at the Olympia Fields Country Club and was chaired by Daleta Mitchell and Joi Broadwater. The affair was spectacular and the committee did an outstanding job capturing the holiday spirit! From the Carolers who greeted us along with Santa Claus, to the Kids Fun Zone, the Jazz Trio, the wonderful food, great fellowship and the breathtaking venue! To top it all off we collected toys for over 100 children and collected books for the library we are planning to create for the Boys and Girls Club under the guidance of our Community Service Committee. Below are fun pictures from the Holiday Party and the photo booth.
