Please save the date for our annual Spring Luncheon as we celebrate DuPage women's commitment to the community. Their incredible gifts of time, talents and treasure will be recognized, as well as their efforts to make our communities a better place for homeless families. Celebrating Women, Transforming Lives honors women with ties to DuPage County, and thank them for their courage and philanthropy.

We are thrilled to welcome back as our emcee Judy Hsu, an Emmy award-winning journalist with more than 20 years experience in broadcast news. As an integral part of the ABC 7 news team since 2001, Judy anchors the afternoon ABC 7 Eyewitness News, at the #1 news station in Chicago.  In addition to her anchor responsibilities, Judy hosts “Newsviews,” a long format interview segment that airs on Sunday mornings. Excited to return as emcee for the fourth year, Judy is beloved by Bridge Communities supporters and has even spent an evening in the cold hosting Sleep Out Saturday in 2015. She looks forward to welcoming the important room of compassionate and caring supporters attending the luncheon. Judy resides in the western suburbs with her husband and four children.
