- March 2015 Newsletter -

Now that the calendar has turned to March, let's hope the weather will begin to warm up. After all, there are just over four months until summer camp.

At Tuesday's Board Meeting, the next group of winning raffle tickets will be drawn. This month there will be quarterly winners drawn. Horizon would like to thank everyone who has sold tickets to help make this a successful fundraiser. Check out our winners' page for drawing dates and find out if you were a lucky winner.
Attention Foodies!
The Morton Grove Foundation's Taste Event
will be on March 5, at The White Eagle Restaurant
in Niles. This promises to be
a wonderful event filled with incredible food, silent auctions and raffles. Doors open at 5:30. The best part is that Horizon receives a portion of the proceeds. For tickets visit The Taste. ($30-presale and $40 at the door). See you there!

Wolves Take on Barons
Come join Horizon as we host our annual Chicago Wolves Outing on Saturday, April 11th. Tickets are $16.50. Payment must be received by March 23rd to ensure you get your tickets in time. The Wolves will be battling the Oklahoma Barons at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:00, but be in your seats by 6:45 so you don't miss the awesome fireworks and laser show! To reserve tickets, contact Michael Meyer.

Featured Highlight: Sheila Caplis


Sheila Caplis first became involved with Horizon through Lincoln Park High School. She came to camp for the first time in 2000 and has attended every year since. Sheila's favorite part of camp is the nightly cookout, which she says is partly because everyone is relaxed and hanging out and partly because it is the best meal of the day.


When Sheila graduated from college she became more involved with the organization. "I decided that I wanted Horizon to be more than one week a year for me." At that time Sheila joined the Recruitment Committee and helped out with processing volunteer applications, which she has been doing ever since. A couple years ago Sheila also joined the Board. She served as Vice President for several years and as of this year she is President.    

Jen and Sheila

Outside of Horizon, Sheila is an attorney, focused on government affairs. She describes herself as a "Pinterest addict" and her hobbies include shopping, crafting, and baking.
