U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth signature TV ad in her campaign for re-election featured Black Hawk helicopters flying and focused on legislation to help veterans. “I used to fly to work at 140 mph,” she says in the spot.

Yet, her own history shows it doesn’t make her immune to political defeat,
The crew on Nov. 12, 2004 Nov 11, 2014 11:45 AM
Ten years ago today, U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth was piloting a Black Hawk helicopter that was shot down over Iraq. That critical moment cost her both legs and partial use of one arm and launched a career in politics. On the annivesary, she and her former crew members talk in detail about what happened in Iraq and their journeys over the past decade.
How two helicopter crews got Duckworth out of Iraq Nov 12, 2014 12:33 PM
In a damaged Black Hawk helicopter in enemy territory in Iraq, Tammy Duckworth and her crew were easy targets. The person who fired the rocket-propelled grenade could not be more than a half mile away, and three of the four crew members were injured, Duckworth severely. “I am a warrior and a member of a team,” says the Soldier's Creed. Together, they all made it out.
10 years after losing her legs, Duckworth returns to flying Nov 13, 2014 5:49 AM
“When I got back in a helicopter, it felt like home.” Ten years after she lost her legs when a rocket-propelled grenade hit her helicopter in Iraq, Tammy Duckworth is beginning to fly again.

The DuPage Community Foundation Celebrates Community Foundation Week November 12-18, 2014 Nov 10, 2014 5:03 PM
The Foundation will celebrate Community Foundation Week by holding its Annual Benefit Dinner on Saturday, November 15. The annual event will be held at The Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus in Oak Brook. This event is the Foundation’s primary fundraiser and is held to celebrate the accomplishments of the organization and the invaluable contributions of our donors and other constituents who support our work. Additional information about the event may be found on the Foundation website, www.dcfdn.org. “This has been a banner year for the Foundation,” said David McGowan, CFRE, Foundation president. “We are growing in nearly every aspect of our work, which means that we can provide more grants to our partner agencies, which in turn means more for the people of DuPage County.” Community foundations represent one of the fastest-growing forms of philanthropy. Every state in the United States is home to at least one community foundation—large and small, urban and rural—that is advancing solutions to a wide range of social issues. Launched in 1989 through a proclamation by former President George H.W. Bush, the first Community Foundation Week included a congressional briefing about the work of community foundations throughout America and their collaborative approach to working with the public, private and not-for-profit sectors to address community needs. About The DuPage Community Foundation: The DuPage Community Foundation seeks to raise the quality of life throughout DuPage County by fostering philanthropy, connecting donors to area needs and building community partnerships. Based on the American virtues of volunteerism and philanthropy, the Foundation fosters a legacy of support for the people of DuPage County by making grants to not-for-profit organizations working in the areas of arts and culture, education, environment, health, and human services. Since its inception, the Foundation has built its endowment to more than $60 million and awarded more than $19 million in grants to not-for-profit agencies serving the residents of DuPage County and beyond. Established in 1986, The DuPage Community Foundation is a publicly-supported 501(c)(3) organization to which contributions are tax deductible. It was created to benefit the people of DuPage County and receives contributions and bequests into a permanent endowment from individuals, corporations, organizations and foundations wishing to make lasting contributions to the people of DuPage. The earnings on these funds are then used, in accordance with donor wishes, for the Foundation’s grantmaking and community leadership activities. For more information about the Foundation, or to arrange future media opportunities, please contact Joelyn Kott, marketing & communications officer, at (630) 665-5556, extension 19, or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Marcel’s Culinary Experience (www.marcelsculinaryexperience.com), a gourmet retail store and recreational cooking school in downtown Glen Ellyn, is gearing up for the year-end holidays with new gift boxes and private event options. “With the improving economy, our customers are getting into holiday mode earlier this year. Many weekend evenings already are booked with corporate and family holiday parties, and we’ve been getting inquiries about gift baskets and boxes for a while,” says Marcel’s Proprietor Jill Foucré. With gift giving and entertaining in mind, Marcel’s staff has assembled six collections of small-batch specialty foods, starting at $75, that come attractively packaged in a Marcel’s branded box for pick up at the store or shipment anywhere in North America. Themes include Taste of Italy, Party Starter and Marcel’s Favorites (as selected by the staff). Many items are made by Chicago area and regional purveyors. “We also can create custom-designed gift baskets or boxes, based on a customer’s preferred theme and budget, and we can even include a bottle of wine,” says Foucré. She encourages individuals and corporate event planners looking to create fun, food-oriented holiday parties, private group classes and other special events to contact her soon, especially if they have a specific date in mind. “Weekends are booking up quickly, as is the entire month of December,” she says. Since its September 2011 opening, Marcel’s has been the site of an increasing number of private events, including birthday and anniversary parties, baby and bridal showers, club meetings, corporate team-building outings, and company celebrations of all types. With its beautifully appointed, professional quality kitchen, skilled chefs, and wide choice of menus, Marcel’s lends itself to a variety of event themes and formats. Options range from cocktail parties to demonstration and participatory cooking classes for all skill levels (including kids and teens) to seated meals and everything in between. “Guests can create an unforgettable meal under the guidance of one of our professional chefs, or they can sit back, relax, savor a glass of wine and watch as our chef takes the reins on their culinary journey,” says Foucré. The Marcel’s staff works with each host to tailor the menu, beverages and guest participation levels according to the specific budget. Events typically range from 10 to 60 people, depending on format and events for smaller groups are available as well.

The concert also includes “Foundling Hospital Anthem”, written by Handel for a London orphanage where many early benefit performances of Messiah had taken place. Guest soloists Kimberly Eileen Jones; Sarah Holman, Cornelius Johnson, and Scott Uddenberg join ECU and a professional orchestra under the direction of James MacDonald. Tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors and $10 for youth (ages 7-22). To order tickets, visit elmhurstchoralunion.org or call 800-838-3006.
