Painters help make a wish come true with Make A Wish Illinois

MAKING A WISH COME TRUE, Painters and Allied Trades District Council 58 participated in and was a sponsor at the 16th Annual Southern Illinois Chicken & Beer Dance March 3 benefitting ‘Make A Wish’ Illinois. There were silent and oral auctions, raffles, 50-50 drawings and a live band. DC58 had six tables and has been participating in the event for 10 years, with Painters Local 2341 member Tom Angelo helping to organize and promote for the event. DC58 raised $6,000 among its members to send 17-year-old Gwyneth on a Caribbean cruise tailored for special needs passengers. She was diagnosed in 2008 with a critical nervous system disorder and the cruise will provide a rare opportunity for adventure with her family and other special needs persons. Pictured are DC58 staff, members, and their families from who attended the event. – Painters and Allied Trades District Council 58 photo
