Sometimes once you notice something, you start hearing or reading more and more about it. Recently we blogged about the generous posthumous support that Bob and Ted Kross’ estate gave to the Elmhurst Heritage Foundation. The very next week we learned that ABC 7’s Janet Davies will emcee the Foundation’s gala to be held in November right here in Elmhurst.

Davies was in town on October 15th to tour the Elmhurst Historical Museum and meet with members of the Heritage Foundation. A member of the ABC 7 news team and host of “190 North”, Davies is a native Midwesterner. She graduated from Miami University in Ohio, and began her broadcasting career at WKRC-TV in Cincinnati before taking off to report from locations all over the world. She has also covered several high-profile events such as the Primetime Emmys, the Academy Awards, and fashion’s Prêt-à-Porter in Paris, and has been nominated for, and won, several prestigious broadcasting awards for reporting, writing and producing.

The gala will be held on November 2nd at Drury Lane - Oakbrook Terrace. Tickets are $125 per person or $1250 for a table of ten. The evening will include dinner, an open bar and musical entertainment as well as live and silent auctions. Proceeds from the event will support the creation of the new History of Elmhurst exhibit for the museum. Tickets are available from the event website.
