Mary Anne Hackett, former president of Illinois Right to Life and current head of Catholic Citizens of Illinois, will be honored by Project Love, the charitable division of Illinois Citizens for Life. Project Love helps pregnant women and new moms in need concretely by paying their landlord or their utility bill. They follow that up with personal notes of encouragement. All their grant money comes from a yearly fundraiser breakfast/ silent auction, and a few smaller ones.
The benefit is April 22, 11 a.m., at the Naperville Country Club. Tickets are $30, if you call (630) 963-8039. (CareNet, a local pregnancy center for 30 years will also receive the Caritas award.)
