On Saturday, February 18, from 6 to 9:30 p.m., Catholic Charities South Suburban Region is hosting the 13th Annual Compassion in Action Dinner at Glenwoodie Golf Club. The night, which includes an award reception, silent auction, and prize raffles, benefits Catholic Charities Emergency Assistance programs in the South region.

More than 200 guests are expected to join the South Suburban Regional Advisory Board and Chairperson Linda C. Abbott to honor special individuals who assist Catholic Charities by making extra efforts to alleviate the distress of those less fortunate.
