DuPage Foundation hosted its 2023 Annual Benefit: Under the Sea in November at The Westin Chicago Lombard. With generous sponsorships and contributions, the evening was a night to remember, grossing more than $565,000 for DuPage Foundation operations and programs aimed at raising the quality of life throughout DuPage County.

The evening featured a cocktail hour followed by a gourmet dinner and dueling piano music by Felix & Fingers. Attendees bid on curated items and experiences in the silent auction, participated in games, and took part in a program and paddle raise presented by the evening’s hostess, Elmhurst resident Kerry Sayers Doucet.
