Jim Dobbs, president of Woodfield Financial Advisors, will serve as Honorary Chairman for Shelter Inc.'s 24th annual Charity Ball "Puttin' on the Glitz" to be held Nov. 18 at the Hyatt Regency Woodfield in Schaumburg.
Dobbs and his wife Jan are longtime supporters of Shelter. Over a decade ago, they began their relationship with the organization by offering a warm and loving home for children in need as Shelter foster parents. Since that time they have continuously offered their support of Shelter's events, programs and mission.
Woodfield Financial Advisors is a personal financial planning firm in Rolling Meadows.
Guests attending the Charity Ball can expect striking décor, a four-course epicurean meal, silent and live auctions, raffles and music to dance into the evening. Dick Johnson, anchor and reporter for the evening's media sponsor, NBC5 Chicago, returns as host.
