The Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association (GLASA), a Make It Better Philanthropy Award winner, recently honored one of the program’s first volunteers, Eileen Shaughnessy of Vernon Hills, at a luncheon hosted by Women in Development North (WIDN) at the Evanston Golf Club on May 2. Since 1994, Shaughnessy has been part of GLASA and is a founding board member of the organization. She has volunteered hundreds of hours with children and adults who have a physical or visual impairment. Eileen’s tireless efforts have helped Lake Country children and adults alike have opportunities to partake in adaptive sports and recreation in Lake County.
