West Suburban PADS, the homeless service provider for near west Cook County, would like to thank Winberie’s Restaurant, Papaspiros, The Pasta Shoppe, Cucina Paradiso and the Caribou Coffee at Oak Park Avenue and Lake Street for donating food and drink for over 200 diners at our 2008 Progressive Dinner. PADS raised a record $11,000 at this traveling 3-course meal, funds that will be used to provide emergency shelter, supportive services, and housing to over 500 homeless men, women and children this winter. These local food purveyors donated thousands of dollars of food for this annual fundraiser, a remarkably generous gift in the best of times. Please help us show our appreciation for their generosity to PADS by frequenting these wonderful restaurants.
