JOLIET – Truth Restaurant selected the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center as the beneficiary of the proceeds from its Sixth Annual Golf Outing held August 19.
Truth owners Kate and Doug Mohundro recently presented a check in the amount of $5,500 to Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow, who established the center in 1995 to improve the way allegations of child sexual abuse are investigated.
The Will County Children’s Advocacy Center is a 501-c-3 non-profit organization. Its professionally trained staff interviews children who are the victims of sexual or severe physical abuse in a non-threatening, non-suggestive environment.
The children’s recorded statements have been used in the successful prosecution of literally hundreds of sexual predators and child abusers over the past 17 years. Last year, the center’s staff interviewed 321 children.
“We are grateful to Kate and Doug Mohundro for choosing the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center as the beneficiary of the money they raised at their annual golf outing,” State’s Attorney Glasgow said. “Truth is a wonderful local restaurant owned and operated by people who care deeply about their community.”
The State’s Attorney added: “We’re also thankful to all the participating golfers and sponsors who came to play this year. This funding will enable the center to continue its crucial mission of protecting vulnerable children in our local community.”
