  • Carol Stream’s American Litho Launches Year-Long Campaign to Fight Cancer Feb 2, 2015 4:37 PM
    American Litho, one of the region’s fastest-growing commercial printing and direct marketing firms, has announced its goal to raise $20,000 for the cancer fight in 2015. Proceeds of the year-long campaign will benefit the American Cancer Society (ACS), says campaign leader Frank Arostegui, himself a cancer survivor and member of the ACS Regional Leadership Board for the DuPage (Illinois) County area. “ACS is a leader in funding research, patient support and education aimed at ending all forms of cancer,” says Arostegui. “We’re proud to be their partner in the fight to save lives.” With more than 300 staff members in Carol Stream, Illinois and a sales and customer service team in Detroit, ALitho will tap the full power of its workforce to raise funds at Relay For Life of Carol Stream on Saturday, June 27. The event takes place at Ross Ferraro Town Center, at the corner of Gary Avenue & Lies Road. Joe Bulgarelli, a member of ALitho’s sales team and resident of St. Charles, Illinois, has volunteered to serve as co-captain of the Relay team. “We can’t wait to get started and we know there will be plenty of support from employees, friends and the community,” Bulgarelli says. But raising funds is just the start, says ALitho President Mike Fontana. “We’re going to make sure employees and their families know how to reduce their own risks for developing cancer,” he adds. “We’re hoping to share some of the tools we create with other businesses in the Carol Stream, St. Charles and Bloomingdale area.” “All of us have been affected by cancer in some way – whether we’ve faced a diagnosis ourselves or watched a loved one struggle with it,” Fontana points out. “We need to support wellness education and programs that provide real help for cancer patients.” Fontana said the company is proud to support ACS programs such as Road to Recovery, which provides free rides to cancer treatment for patients who can’t get there on their own, and the 24/7 hotline (800-227-2345) for cancer patients, caregivers, family and friends. To help employees learn more about cancer prevention, ALitho will host a series of wellness events, including an April lunch-and-learn focused on simple steps to reduce risks. A cookbook featuring healthy recipes will be published this summer, followed by an ice skating event organized by ALitho employees who play and coach hockey. The company also plans to field a team for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, a morning walk that will take place Sunday, October 18 at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois. “We’re planning a series of ‘wear-your-jeans-to-work’ days and a special pink-out event to get people involved in Strides,” says Arostegui. “Throughout the fall we’ll share information about nutrition, physical activity, smoking cessation and other ways that women and men can stay healthy for life.” Arostegui is a frequent contributor to ALitho’s company blog, where he recently shared the story of his cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery. He will serve as a leadership host of the ACS Black & White Ball on Saturday, February 28. More information about ACS programs, services, and fundraising events is available at www.cancer.org or by calling 800-227-2345 anytime, day or night. American Litho (www.alitho.com) is a leading provider of commercial printing, direct mail and packaging solutions for top brands across the U.S. The company provides a full range of web, sheet-fed, wide-format and digital printing services from its plant in Carol Stream, Illinois, along with data analytics, postal logistics, warehousing and multichannel programs for integrated marketing needs.

  • Bloomingdale Public Library Presents History of the Eastland Disaster February 3 Feb 2, 2015 4:55 PM
    Ted Wachholtz, Chief Historian of the Eastland Disaster Historical Society, will share the history and life stories of the Eastland disaster at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 3 at Bloomingdale Public Library, 101 Fairfield Way. It is the 100 year anniversary of the Eastland disaster. The SS Eastland was a passenger ship based in Chicago. On July 24, 1915 as it was being cast off its lines on the south bank of the Chicago River between LaSalle and Clark Streets, the Eastland slowly rolled on its side with over 2,500 passengers and crew members on board. A large crowd of spectators watched in horror, as the ship was only a few feet from the wharf and was in only 20 feet of water. More than 800 people died in the accident. The Eastland was scheduled to take employees of the Western Electric Company on an excursion to Michigan City, Indiana for their fifth annual employee picnic. Months of planning and preparation for the excursion and picnic led up to the Eastland disaster, but the tragedy itself was over in a matter of minutes. Because the Eastland capsized so suddenly, no lifeboats or rafts were launched. Ordinary men and women, many of whom risked their lives, aided in the rescue of survivors and recovery of victims. The 45-minute program, which is co-sponsored by the Bloomingdale Historical Society, will feature dozens of photographs, a compelling first-hand narrative delivered by descendants of a survivor, a video interview of several survivors, and a brief video account of how George “Papa Bear” Halas arrived too late to board the Eastland (a fortunate bit of fate that guaranteed the future of the Chicago Bears and the National Football League). “Even though this disaster resulted in the largest death toll of any single event occurring in the continental United States in the twentieth century, very few people are familiar with the story,” says Nancy Kendzior, Adult Programmer at Bloomingdale Public Library. “Twenty-one entire families were wiped out. We are fortunate to have the Bloomingdale Historical Society partner with us to share the life stories of those lost 100 years ago.” Call Bloomingdale Public Library to register at (630) 924-2730, or register online at www.mybpl.org
