Empowering Families Breakfast Event
Thank you to everyone who attended!
Thank you to all who attended the event and supported the critical work of Dakota Woodlands! Because of you, we raised over $23,000 for the programs that support families experiencing homelessness in our community. A special thank you to our impact speaker, Julie Jacobson, as well as our keynote speaker, Damone Bester. This event wouldn't have been possible without our sponsors, and especially our hosts - Thomson Reuters. You are all part of our Dakota Woodlands community and we are thankful for all you do to support this work!
Featuring Damone Bester, award-winning author of Mendel, a coming-of-age story about a senior at Chicago’s legendary Mendel High who must learn how to forgive as he navigates life without his mother. Damone is an author, poet, aspiring screenwriter and voiceover artist.
