Shadow Day A Huge Success

On May 25, 2011 24 students and three chaperones from Von Steuben High School came to Northbrook to meet 11 female business owners who are members of the Chicago Area Chapter North Shore Business Development Group, a part of (NAWBO). That day, Executive Chef Warren Jones, from Bluegrass Restaurant, in Highland Park, also attended the event. As a corporate partner, the Bluegrass Restaurant is where this NAWBO group holds its twice a month meetings.

The purpose of Shadow Day is to encourage the students learn about possible business and health careers they may want to pursue upon high school graduation. Currently, the students are part of an after school program that designs websites for non-profits.

Chef Warren delighted the students when he cooked his delicious waffles and made enough for everyone to enjoy them. He also promised to send his recipe to one of the chaperones to pass onto the students so everyone could make these waffles at home. Bluegrass Restaurant also provided a wonderful lunch for everyone who attended.

The students toured the architectural office of Lenore Balgelman, owner of Full Circle Architects. They heard presentations on IT consulting from Karen Sanders, why web branding is important from Rose Kostan Schwartz, health and wellness information from Sharon Weinstein, skin care advice from Paula Silver, facts about telemarketing from Merle Kalisky and information about being a travel agent by Marcy Gelber. In addition, Donna St. Aubin discussed human resources, Lynne Franklin focused on corporate communications, while Vicki Gerson discussed the importance of public relations and web blogging.

Girl Scout Camp



This story was shared by one of our Girl Scouts who faces violence and poverty in her neighborhood every day. When I heard this, I realized we must make a commitment to ensure that every girl, no matter where she lives, benefits from a safe and nurturing camp experience.

Camp has the power to impact and change a girl’s life forever, even after a day, a weekend or a week.

Summer camp registration is underway now, although not every girl has the resources to participate. That’s why we’re asking for your support. Your gift will continue to allow us to provide the camp experience to all girls!

Please visit www.girlscoutsgcnwi.org/donate or call us at 312-416-2500 today.

Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Together we can unlock the potential in each and every Girl Scout.

Yours in Girl Scouting,

Maria Wynne
Chief Executive Officer
