Naperville Responds ‘Strength and Honor’ Lunch returns April 26


Join Naperville Responds For Veterans when they host their annual “Strength and Honor” Luncheon beginning at noon on Tuesday, April 26, 2022, to honor and give thanks to Veterans.

The Luncheon will be held at Bobak’s Signature Events in Woodridge, 6440 Double Eagle Dr. An 11AM arrival and check-in is scheduled with lunch served promptly at noon.

This year’s featured speaker is Kathy Kincanon Nosek, author of My Darling: 99 Love Letters, a true love story centered around her Dad’s love letters to her Mom during WWII. Kathy’s Dad, Corporal Bernie Kincanon, enlisted in the Army in November 1944, and was sent to fight on the front lines in the Battle of the Bulge.

After being captured by enemy forces, Corporal Kincanon was not heard from for several months.

He returned home when the Allied Forces won the war, never to speak about the experience to Kathy or her four siblings.

The luncheon is free of charge for Veterans and one guest (spouse, family member, care-taker, or good friend). Veterans wishing to attend are asked to RSVP through the Naperville Responds website by April 11.

The cost is $60 for individuals, $500 per table of ten and sponsorship opportunities are available. For more info and to purchase tickets, visit www.napervilleresponds.org.

All current and applicable COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed.
