The Hillels of Illinois Benefit 2009, co-chaired by Dana Gordon and Frances H. Krasnow was a fun evening of great food and drink, mingling with Hillel supporters and students, a silent auction, hilarious entertainment from ComedySportz, and a decadent dessert reception featuring hand-made chocolates. Thanks to all our guests for making the evening such a success, and thanks to all our supporters for ensuring that Jewish student life continues to thrive throughout Illinois.
