On Sunday, March 16, Maggiano's Little Italy at the Streets of Woodfield in Schaumburg opened its doors to host the 17th annual Clearbrook's PAL (Partners in Adult Learning) Program fundraiser where friends and family alike were encouraged to "mangia, mangia" while supporting a worthy cause.

This fun-filled afternoon had many new surprises to offer to the 260 people who attended, including a delicious traditional family-style meal with all the Italian trimmings. Guests were treated to appetizers, beverages, a traditional three course family-style meal, including a tiramisu dessert, in addition to the chance to bid on fabulous live and silent auction items.
