"As much despair as there has been in the past few months, I can't help but be uplifted by the signs of hope and the overwhelming generosity that I have seen from the families in our community," said Curtis. "I'm running for office to help the families of our community. This is just one more small way we can serve those in need."

Laura is sponsoring the event with local elected officials and candidates, including former State Rep. Jeanne Ives and State Sen. Jim Oberweis.
