Angel Wings, a Hanover Park-based nonprofit organization that is working to provide safe and independent housing to adults with epilepsy, was presented with a new 2014 Toyota Highlander by Schaumburg Toyota/Scion as part of the automaker's 100 Cars for Good program.

As part of a national program, Toyota gave away 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over the course of 50 days. Angel Wings was the only Chicago area recipient.

Recipient organizations were selected through public voting on Facebook last fall. Organizations applied to become part of the program and Angel Wings was one of the 250 finalists. Accepting the vehicle was Angel Wings Executive Director Becki Flader, who attended the event with her family.

Becki Flader's sister, Noel, has suffered seizures nearly every day since she was 8 years old in 1992.

The foundation was created by the family with the mission seeking donors, obtaining grants from public and private sources, and doing fundraising to create housing to serve young adults with epilepsy.
