JAMES W. GLASGOW
Will County State's Attorney

We’re ready to fire up the ovens and crank up the burners for the 11th annual MEN WHO COOK fundraiser to benefit the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center. I respectfully ask you to take a sponsorship role in this signature fundraising event that raises the needed funding to provide hope, healing and justice for sexually abused and severely physically abused children.

In 1995, I founded the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The average client is a 10 to11 year old girl, sexually abused by someone she knows and trusts. Their operations are funded through public and private grants, individual and corporate donations, and money raised at MEN WHO COOK– our only fundraiser.

When children make an outcry of abuse, the trained and compassionate interviewers at the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center obtain an accurate statement through a victim-sensitive forensic interview in a neutral, non-suggestive, and child-friendly environment.

Additionally, the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center provides trauma-informed advocacy and trauma-focused therapy to enable the child’s healing to begin.

As a MEN WHO COOK sponsor, you:

  • Support our efforts to stop child abuse
  • Increase your visibility to an engaged group of community leaders & participants
  • Make a positive difference in the lives of children and families in our community

MEN WHO COOK features ‘regular guys’ who whip up their favorite dishes and offer bite-size samples to the guests – in a friendly and spirited competition. Last year, over 1,200 attendees and many generous sponsors, helped us raise over $110,000.

Every day we see children who have lived through terrible abuse or who have witnessed terrifying violence, reclaim their childhood. The continued success of the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center relies on the generosity of our sponsors!

Sincerely,
