The foundation installed the new board of directors at a ceremony in May which also included: Kat Maggio, president-elect; Eunice Turnbaugh, past president; Shannon Juarez, treasurer; Kristi Bertie, secretary; Amanda Horne, ways & means chairwoman; Elizabeth Larson, philanthropic chairwoman; and Palak Coleman and Laura Fields, communications co-chairs.
Hirschauer will oversee all aspects of the 501(c)3 organization, which raised and disbursed nearly $38,000 this past year to improve the lives of children and families in the Fox Valley area, including CHIP-IN Batavia and CASA Kane County.

In addition to the large fundraisers held annually, the Batavia Mothers' Club Foundation also supports local charities each month by providing needed donations or services.
