Forest & Bluff Magazine Highlights Dolan Family’s Three-Decade Commitment to Shirley Ryan AbilityLab
A recent article in Forest & Bluff, a magazine covering several Northshore communities, highlighted the Dolan family’s decades-long, multi-generational commitment to fundraising and leadership at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.
The members of the Lake Forest family who have served our organization include:
- Daniel (Danny), who started as a member of the Associate Board and is currently vice chair of the Board of Directors. “This hospital is so unbelievable. So inspirational. So mind blowing. I can’t imagine not being part of this organization,” he said.
- Genevieve and Caroline, members of Associate Board and organizers of Art in Motion, which raises funds for Shirley Ryan AbilityLab’s Art Therapy and Therapeutic Recreation programs. These important programs aren’t covered by insurance, so donor support is crucial.
