She is graciously donating a portion of all sales to The Chicago Lighthouse in recognition and appreciation of “its amazing contribution to those with disabilities.” Special guest speaker will be Lighthouse President & CEO Dr. Janet Szlyk who is spearheading the Mag Mile initiative.  Dr. Szlyk will discuss the project’s goal to create access and inclusion, break down barriers and open more doors for the disabled community.
