The Love of God Foundation Dinner & Auction, which was held on Friday, June 12th, at the Marquardt of Barrington dealership, provided all attendees with an evening filled with delicious food, dancing, a silent and live auction, and lots of fellowship benefiting four worthy organizations.

$10,000 to Hesed House, giving shelter, food, clothing, skills training, and hope to the homeless in Aurora, IL.
$10,000 to Education and Hope, educating severely impoverished children while providing some of their most basic needs in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala.
