has always believed that "the arts are the implicit language of peace in the world, with Ravinia
the shining star."When she was chairman of the Ravinia Women's Board, the board began to fundraise.Her
children worked with the board and with her
when the board started the Friendship Booth, which evolved into Ravinia Gifts.Her
children chose to honor her
with a very generous gift to the endowment fund, in perpetuity.This gift is noted this year with the concert with Itzhak Perlman conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra with Orion Weiss, piano, and the music theater workshop of Unlock'd.
