Marklund's 2010 Dinner Auction A Huge Success

More than $24,000 was raised for Marklund at its 2010 Diner Auction Shopping Extravaganza at St. Andrews Golf and Country Club in West Chicago, IL.

More than 180 guests including children attended Marklund's 2010 Dinner Auction Shopping Extravaganza held Friday, Nov. 12, at St. Andrews Golf and Country Club, 2241 Route 59, West Chicago. This was the first year the event was geared toward families instead of couples, and by all accounts, all ages had a blast.

Not only was the event loads of fun, but more than $24,000 was raised for Marklund's services, providing a full-life experience for infants, children and adults with developmental disabilities.

Two children were congratulated for collecting more than $150 in donations for Marklund - Colette Methling of Elburn and Timothy Brown of Plainfield.

The evening included free family photos, and the children enjoyed decorating cookies. Dancers from Geneva's State Street Dance Studio performed two numbers from "West Side Story."

The silent and live auctions were successful, too. There were five live auction items, including a weeklong vacation near Jackson Hole, WY, courtesy of Sage Properties and United Airlines. More than 75 Chinese auction items included toys, home goods, foodie packages, and more, and 50 silent auction items featured getaways to Lake Geneva and the Wisconsin Dells.

Gold sponsors were the International Skin Beauty Academy in Schaumburg, and McCullough, Rossi & Co., Ltd, Hoffman Estates. The silver sponsor was Meridian Design Build, Deerfield, and the bronze sponsor was Olsson Roofing Company in Aurora.

"Marklund is all about family, and it truly showed at our 2010 Dinner Auction," said Vicki Krystof, director of development for Marklund. "Kids participated in the bidding and were drawn like magnets to the entertainment for the evening. Families dined and chatted with each other and friends. We couldn't be luckier to have such a great group of supporters who came out, and we are thrilled with the event's success. We couldn't have done it without our great committee and generous sponsors."

The dinner auction committee is resting on its laurels. Members include Lola Badmus of Algonquin, Kelly Behn of Arlington Heights, Mary Burchi of Hanover Park, Rosemary Campolattara of North Aurora, George and Arlana Fako of La Grange Park, Lisa Kleya of Woodstock, Lynn Macella of Glen Ellyn, Heather Manna of Batavia, Liz Musinski of Wheaton, Phyllis Perry of Chicago, Peggy Szarzynski of Winfield, and Carol Taylor of Elk Grove Village.
