The Hadley School for the Blind held its annual benefit at Michigan Shores Club in Wilmette on April 25, and raised more than $240,000. The gala entertained over 200 guests with casino games including poker, roulette and black jack. The event was co-chaired by women’s board members Kim Peterson of Winnetka and Stacy Smith of Kenilworth.
The Hadley School for the Blind was founded in 1920 with the mission to promote independent living through lifelong education programs for people who are blind or visually impaired, their families and blindness service providers. The world’s largest educator of braille, Hadley serves 10,000 students in 50 states and 100 countries each year.
