St. Gilbert Fundraiser
Vintage Vogue luncheon raises $20,000
More than 250 guests gathered on May 2 for Vintage Vogue, a fundraiser for the St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Gilbert Church in Grayslake. The festive luncheon featured 35 volunteers modeling a selection of 80 fashions from the early 1900's from the private collection of Grayslake resident Gloria Venzon.
Highlights included the original LBD--little black dress--a black Chanel dress from the 1920's, and six vintage wedding dresses representing iconic styles from the last century. The fundraiser also featured a silent auction with donated items from Lake County residents and local businesses. The event raised over $20,000 that will benefit those in need in the Grayslake area.

Orland Park Thrift Store Opens in January
Orland Park St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store at 7010 West 159th Street is now open!
"Anyone looking for good bargains and a way to give back to their community should look no further than the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store," SVdP Chief Executive Officer James D. Lonergan said. "Our Orland Park location will have a powerful impact not only on the people that we work with directly, but also on the larger community as a whole; offering a low-cost, high quality shopping experience as well as employment and volunteer opportunities."
St. Vincent de Paul is a non-profit organization. All of the proceeds from thrift store sales go directly back into the community to fund the St. Vincent de Paul food pantries and emergency voucher programs.
"Our thrift stores are self-sustaining enterprises and help us provide the basics for human dignity such as food, shelter, and clothing to thousands of people annually. We plan to build six more thrift stores over the next five years so we can better serve the growing number of people who come to us for help," Lonergan said.
Gently used clothing, shoes, housewares, home décor, books, furniture and much more can be found at low prices in a clean and modern store. Store features include wide shopping aisles, pleasant lighting, and large department signage to help our customers find what they need.
Store hours: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Mon., Tues., Thurs., Fri., and Saturday.
10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
