The 18th annual William C. Staszak Award Dinner & Benefit was a beautiful evening celebrating Children’s Clinic Executive Director Elizabeth Lippitt, who gave a moving speech demonstrating her passion for children’s health and education. The event also featured a dramatic Bulls-style introduction of many of the Vex Robotics students and coaches who took their bots all the way to the National Championship in Omaha and emerged with a 2nd place finish.

The Staszak Benefit had another banner year in ticket and auction sales as well, raising big bucks for OPEF’s exciting enrichment programs for District 97 students. Thank you to all who organized, donated, attended, bid and won!
