Share Article

The RE/MAX Northern Illinois network recently honored those members who led its fundraising efforts in 2016 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The network donated nearly $184,000 to CMNH last year, $25,000 more than in 2015.

Chad and Sarah Gilbert, owners of RE/MAX Suburban, accepted the award their company earned for its exceptional support of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

The RE/MAX Northern Illinois network has long been a leading supporter of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH). Recently the network honored those members who led its fundraising efforts in 2016 when nearly $184,000 was donated to CMNH. That was an increase of more than $25,000 over the 2015 total.

RE/MAX Northern Illinois has contributed more than $3 million to CMNH since 1992.

Most funds raised by the network go to Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. However, donations from offices in the far western portion of the RE/MAX Northern Illinois region benefit the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital in Iowa City, Iowa.

At its 40th Annual Awards Ceremony, held Feb. 17 at Navy Pier, RE/MAX honored the brokers and offices that were leading contributors to that effort in 2016. The awards they received featured artwork created by young patients at Lurie Children’s Hospital. Five companies received a CMNH Outstanding Citizen Award as the top fundraisers. As a group, the contributions of these companies accounted for 52 percent of the total donated to CMNH by RE/MAX Northern Illinois last year.

The 64 offices honored as Miracle Offices reached that status by meeting a minimum donation requirement to CMNH during 2016. Those offices accounted for 61 percent of RE/MAX offices in the northern Illinois region, a new record for office participation.

Angie Lotz of RE/MAX All Pro in Bloomingdale, Ill., was saluted as the 2016 Top Miracle Agent for donating $3,750 to CMNH. The Becker Group of RE/MAX Advantage Realty, Antioch, Ill., was named 2016 Top Miracle Team after donating $8,100.
