Fair Lady Productions, Inc. will present Naperville’s Sixth Annual Fair Lady Award Banquet on Thurs., June 8, to honor Naperville resident, community businesswoman and Executive Director of KidsMatter, IdaLynn Wenhold.

The Fair Lady Award is a special recognition of a community business woman who has made a difference through her significant contributions. The recipient of this award has many leadership attributes. She is a forward thinker who demonstrates how enduring value is created in a community, noted Kandiss Hernandez, owner of Center Stage Theater where the tribute will be held. Hernandez created the award five years ago in honor of her grandmother, her inspiration.

“IdaLynn is a shining example of the impact such a woman can have in the lives of many families and especially kids,” said Mary Kerbs, event planner for Fair Lady Productions at Center Stage Theater.

Wenhold, known for her witty poetry and understanding heart, is married to Greg Wenhold, co-senior pastor at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. They have three grown children. With passions for service, about five years ago, the Wenhold family joined forces to found a nonprofit organization known as “‘4:13,’ which helps children globally move from poverty to possibility.”

Past recipients of the Fair Lady Award include Elizabeth Braham Spencer, Executive Director of NCTV17 (2012), and Stephanie Penick, Publisher of Positively Naperville (2013), and Bev Patterson Frier, Community Leader (2014), Mary Ann Bobosky, Community Leader (2015), and Becky Anderson, co-owner of Anderson’s Bookshop (2016).

Idalynn Wenhold enlisted the help of Mayor Steve Chirico to raise awareness about the Accidental Drug Dealer (home medicine cabinets) and other public programs via KidsMatter.

5-7:30PM Thurs., June 8

Catered by Carrabbas Italian Grill, this year’s banquet will be held from 5-7:30PM Thursday, June 8, at Center Stage Theater, located at 1665 Quincy Ave. Suite 131.

The community is invited to join many business leaders, city officials, and friends in this celebration that will include cocktails, dinner, and entertainment.

Attendance is limited to the first 150 guests. Consider sponsoring a table of 8 for $350 or reserve a place for $50.

Folks who know Wenhold also are welcome to be a part of the Fair Lady 2017 printed program, too, certain to be a keepsake in celebration of her tireless support and love for community.

“This is an opportunity to personally endorse and congratulate Idalynn,” added Kerbs, noting that tributes and payment are requested by May 30 for the printed program.

The cocktail reception will begin at 5PM, followed by keynote speakers, entertainment, Fair Lady Award presentation  beginning at 5:30PM, and dinner at 6:30PM.
