Our winners are treated to a morning at Spa Bleu, the beautiful and premier Spa in West Dundee. Spa Bleu has been a sponsor to our mission for several years, and once again volunteered to continue to support and help us promote the creativity and talent of the youth in our community.
We are grateful for your support year after year.
Spa Bleu participated in Shamrocks for Charity fund raising by selling buttons in 2022 and 2023. Both years, Spa Bleu generously donated $1000.00 for food pantries exceeding any expectations we had. We are so grateful for the support and generosity of this wonderful business.

Thom McNamee and his twin brother Tim grew up enjoying the Fox River and all that the Dundee Township had to offer. They were avid outdoorsmen who loved nature. They were truly passionate about preserving its beauty and giving back to the community they adored.
Thom donated the Tim McNamee Park and Canoe Launch in Carpentersville on the Fox River in Tim’s memory. Thom continued investing in the downtown area of East Dundee, actively supporting local businesses through his revitalization of the River and Water Street areas.
