CHAD has been selected, along with six other non-profit organizations, to participate in the Community Christmas Trees Display at the Robert R. McCormick Museum at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, IL. Each nonprofit organization will be decorating a tree in a manner that reflects their mission and will receive a $2,500 donation from the McCormick Foundation. In addition, CHAD has the opportunity to obtain a second matching donation of $2,500 from the McCormick Foundation if our tree is chosen by visitors to the museum as their favorite tree.

Please consider visiting the Community Christmas Tree display at the Robert R McCormick Museum during the holiday season and encourage your family and friends to attend as well. We need your votes to obtain the second donation of $2,500! The trees will be on display between November 25th and December 30th on the days that the museum is open.
