We’ve been spending a little time down Berwyn way. To say that Berwyn has come a long way is certainly an understatement! One of the “Wonders of Berwyn” is our friend Aimée Sordelli. Aimée is one of those people that you can always count upon for any civic undertaking around Berwyn. It is with great pleasure that we cam publicize her being honored for her community service at Berwyn’s 26th Annual Charles E. Piper Award to be held on Saturday, November 5, 2011 at Pierre’s Banquets located at 3237 Harlem Ave in Berwyn, Illinois.
Hailing originally from Oak Park, Aimée Sordelli has spent her entire life in the Chicagoland area and eventually established roots in Berwyn in 1995. Aimée currently serves as a Medicare Specialist for the Patient Financial Services Department at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood. Her approach to her clients is holistic, serving their mental, physical and social needs. And indeed, this all-embracing method crosses over into her volunteer life as well.
Aimée’s passion is for supporting the community, and her strength is in cultivating fellowship with others. After the tragedy on September 11, 2001, Aimée was inspired by a mission to show her gratitude to Berwyn’s emergency first responders. She founded an initiative that started as a single crock of chili for the Berwyn Fire Department and has grown to include a coordinated city-wide effort to annually provide meals for Berwyn’s fire, police and paramedics on September 11.
The theme for this years Charles E. Piper Award celebration is Down & Derby at the Berwyn Jockey Club and will feature a Kentucky Derby theme complete with horse races, casino games, a grand prize drawing and a silent auction fundraiser for the Berwyn Development Corporation. Derby attire, including pastel and brightly colored dresses and suits and iconic hats, is highly encouraged.
