Creating Change for Adolescent Girls

HGNA challenges the negative images and information bombarding girls today, while offering support and education to their parents.

Thank You to the Amazing DG Community

Thank You to the Amazing DG Community

The weather was gorgeous and the pancakes plentiful for HGNA's Annual Fundraising Pancake Breakfast.  A heart-felt thank you to all of you who came together to help us raise the money that we need each year to provide our programs to the girls and parents in our community. Thank you to the over 500 people who came out for breakfast. Thank you to all of our community leaders who came and served food and beverages at the breakfast -- and thank you especially to the Downers Grove Junior Woman's Club for their part in providing numerous volunteers. Thank you also to all of our generous financial, raffle and food and beverage supply donors.  You all come together to make this day possible.  We are the only organization in the western suburbs offering the programs we do, and the girls consistently tell us that our Chick Chat program is for them "their best day ever!"  You make that possible.  Thank you.
