PAMS Annual Family Picnic

On Sunday, August 16th, 2015, PAMS members and their families gathered together for our annual Family Picnic, organized by doctors Beata Danek and Katarzyna Kusz. Festivities took place at the Jack & Lydia Resort, in Lake Villa, Illinois. There was a record attendance of over 100 people hanging around until dark, enjoying beautiful weather in beautiful surroundings, and taking so much needed time off from our busy professional lives.

Music was courtesy of the band, Second Opinion, staffed by our PAMS doctors, Dr Tucci and Dr Niekrasz, and it made our time even more special. There was dancing, there was wine, and there was yummy polish food, made by our hosts – Jack & Lydia. Their welcoming, warm attitude made this event very laid back and relaxing.

Some of us played beach volleyball, while others enjoyed pedal boats on Deep Lake, which is attached to the resort. Others were having fun mingling and goofing around with old and new friends.

We also had a moment of silence in memory of our beloved friend, Ewa Buch, who suddenly passed away recently. We all gathered together to take a group photo with smiling faces in honor of Ewa’s everlasting smile, positive attitude, and tremendous contribution to our society.

Later, there was a bonfire and singing along with guitar and accordion tunes. There was dancing, even on the table, by some of our brave members, including our president, Dr. Kornelia Krol.

Overall, it was another very successful gathering. We had several new members join us for the picnic, helping us to continue to grow stronger to make a difference and support each other.

“Fifty Shades of Fashion” Fundraising Dinner 11/9/2014

 

Our First Annual Benefit Fashion Show “Fifty Shades of Fashion” took place on Sunday November 9th, 2014 at Stereo Club in Chicago. 205 people attended the fashion show, many of which were physicians as well as their friends and family. Thanks to all those who helped out, the event was huge success. Stereo Club provided the great music and beautiful venue. The Polish physicians who became runway models for the night created a breathtaking spectacle. Malgorzata Wajs, former model, directed the event. Our wonderful sponsors provided an unbelievable variety of clothes. Tasty food was served by Grota Banquets and appreciated by all those attending.

By spending some time outside of our busy professional lives making new friends, meeting colleagues, and cheering for one another, those who participated strengthened their professional relationships. It is much easier to refer a patient to someone when you know their face, not just their name.

“Fifty Shades of Fashion” helped us raise money for a scholarship fund to benefit medical, dental, and veterinary students of Polish heritage. Part of the profits will also be used to help organize a Christmas Party and gifts for a Chicago shelter for Polish single moms and their children.

We look forward to organizing more entertaining and relationship building fund raising events in the future!
