Tributes to Special Women:
We're giving in honor of my mom, Jeanie Swiontoniowski. She's one of the most selfless people we know, and we're sure she'll be thrilled her Mother's Day present will give hope and opportunity to those in need!
As a former member of the CAWC Junior Board Leadership Team, this organization is extremely close to my heart. When I was younger, my mother was always involved at my school and within our community. She instilled in me, a sense of obligation to give back to those in need. My mom always supported my work with CAWC. During my tenure with the JB, we never missed the annual Mother's Day weekend fundraising brunch. It was something my mom and I looked forward to attending. In fact, she drove 5 hours (each way) to be there each year! The work CAWC performs is vital to the Chicago community, and I am honored to make a donation in her name --- Marilyn Theobald..
Shirley Lessl my late mother. She would have marched into hell to rescue any of her children.
