Karaoke just got a lot more fun! Join us this Saturday at PS Pub in Wheeling for a night of singing to benefit the Association of Horizon. Gong Karaoke is simple: donate any amount to sing, to nominate someone to sing, or to kick someone off the mic!  It's going to be a great night!
Taste of Morton Grove
Mike Trimpe received a $2,000 check from the Morton Grove Foundation at their annual Taste of Morton Grove event held at the White Eagle on March 3rd. Horizon would like to send a special thanks to all the board members of the Morton Grove Foundation for all of their hard work. They truly help lots of deserving charities, and we are very lucky to be included.

Horizon Highlight: Simonette Bustos
Simonette Bustos got involved with Horizon after attending MDA camp for several years. Due to the change in age requirements for MDA, 1990 was going to be Simonette's last year of camp. She heard that a group was going to be starting a new summer camp for adults and she decided to attend Horizon's first summer camp. After a few years, Simonette joined the Board of Directors and the Recruitment Committee. She was Vice President for one term and was the recruitment co-chair for a couple years. She has also helped out with many fundraisers over the years and has been a Team Leader.
Simonette and Merry
There are many parts of camp that Simonette loves. She enjoys being out in the woods, relaxing and breathing the fresh air. She also enjoys the vast selection of activities at camp. From soccer, to paintball, to spa day, there is something for everyone. Another of Simonette's favorite parts of camp is the sense of camaraderie and community. "Even with all the first time participants over the years, no one feels like an outsider for long. Everyone is family."
Outside of Horizon, Simonette is an artist. She enjoys photography, graphic design, and creating abstract designs in various mediums. She is a big fan of streaming entertainment, specifically foreign films and horror movies. She enjoys reading on her e-reader and experimental cooking with whatever ingredients she has on hand. She also loves spending time with her nieces and nephews and hanging out with friends.
