Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 05, 2013
The 3rd Annual Michelle Radke Benefit in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) and Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago will be held from 12:30 to 6 p.m. on May 19 in the Austin’s Fuel Room, 481 Peterson Road, Libertyville, Ill.
Music always plays a big role in the event, and this year, three top flight local bands are donating their performances to the cause. They are the Michael Lescher Band, the Suburban Cowboys and the Buckley Road Band. Tickets to the event are $10 each and can be purchased online at http://www.3rdannualmichelleradkebenefit.eventbrite.com or at the door. Along with great music, there will be a silent auction and a raffle where tickets cost $1 each and an array of outstanding prizes can be won, including gift certificates to health clubs, restaurants, a skating rink and much more.
The benefit is a highly personal effort by Donna Radke and her daughter, Jennifer Radke, to honor the memory of Michelle, Donna’s daughter and Jennifer’s sister, whose untimely death at 29 resulted from complications of diabetes, which was first diagnosed when she was 2 years old. Michelle was treated at Milwaukee Children’s Hospital for many years.
“When Michelle was a child dealing with that disease, we came to understand the role that CMNH plays in making sure that many families with sick or injured children don’t have to face those difficulties alone,” said Donna Radke, who is the managing broker of RE/MAX Center in Grayslake, Ill., where Jennifer also works as a broker associate.
The two earlier editions of the Michelle Radke Benefit, which Donna and Jennifer organized on their own, have raised nearly $12,000 for Lurie Children’s Hospital.
All funds raised at the event will benefit Lurie Children’s Hospita
