Before Jamie Raisor, 19, gave birth to her daughter, Ashirah, now 2, and before 18-year-old Christin Deloach became a mom to her daughter, Zyonna, now 1, both were typical teenagers at Oak Park and River Forest High School.
Parenthesis Family Center would like to express our deep appreciation to all the individuals, local businesses, and sponsors that helped make our 27th Annual Kitchen Walk a huge success. We are especially grateful to the 10 homeowners who opened up their kitchens to over 700 visitors on a very busy spring weekend. This event could not happen without the 70 volunteers who worked as house coordinators and hosts.
