It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little - do what you can. ~Sydney Smith
In times of need, families, communities and organizations often find it in themselves to come together and offer whatever help they can. People donate to charities that help out animals, education programs, the environment, the homeless, those displaced due to natural disasters, and many other causes. When you donate to a charity, you're not just giving monetary or tangible contributions, you're helping to spread hope and awareness. Even in times of economic downturn, people have still managed to find a way to contribute what they can and help out in any way they can. Even you can only contribute a small amount, that little bit helps and goes towards the ultimate goal of aiding those in need.
Every year, Lou Malnati's hosts an Annual Cancer Benefit to raise funds for cancer research and education programs. Over the past 10 years we have raised money to benefit organizations such as Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Gilda's Club of Chicago and Children's Memorial Hospital, all of whose staffs are dedicated in working towards finding a cure for cancer. This year will mark the 40th anniversary and we're looking forward to another successful year of raising funds for a good cause. The night will include a raffle, silent and live auctions and a performance by Chicago's The Second City featuring a selected player of the Chicago Blackhawks.
