OMNI’s 45th Anniversary Celebration
a Sparkling Success!
Our lovely event co-chairs! Diana Ferarra and Cheryl Hofmann
Over 150 new and longtime friends joined us to celebrate OMNI’s impact over the past 45 years and look to the future as we prepare to continue helping kids and families in the next 45 years. Guests enjoyed games, food, libations, dancing and inspiring messages from OMNI’s leadership and former clients. Special thanks to event Chairs Diana Ferrara and Cheryl Hofmann who provided outstanding leadership and helped the event raise over $55,000! These funds will help OMNI as we move forward and expand our services with our new facility in Wheeling.
OMNI Board of Directors, Board of Ambassadors and guests enjoyed a beautiful day at Arlington Park Racetrack on Derby Day! Thanks to sponsors and longtime Board of Ambassadors Cheryl and John Hofmann, this event helped raise funds as well as allow donors and friends to make stronger connections to each other and OMNI. The highlight of the day was when Maggie, a dynamic young woman and OMNI client, spoke about her experience and the impact OMNI has made on her life. “Everywhere else I went for help treated me like a problem or a nuisance. At OMNI, they treated me like a kid WITH a problem. They respected me and I can’t thank them enough.”
Thank you to Cheryl and John Hofmann for being wonderful hosts and OMNI Ambassadors!
