In observance of Women’s History Month, the Cook County Commission on Women’s Issues, County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, and the Cook County Board of Commissioners joined together on March 3rd, 2016 at the Chicago Cultural Center to host the 19th Annual Cook Unsung Heroine Awards Breakfast. Each year the Cook County Commission on Women’s Issues sponsors the “Unsung Heroine” Award and honors one woman from each of the seventeen Cook County Districts whose contributions have silently, yet notably, made a positive impact to their communities. This year, Cook County Commissioner Jeff Tobolski and Women’s Commissioner Terri Rivera selected Elizabeth Cabral-Arreola as the 2016 recipient of the Cook County Unsung Heroine Award for the 16th District. Cabral was recognized for her nearly three decades as the volunteer Director of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a non-profit food pantry that partners with the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Commissioner Tobolski noted her vital contributions and volunteer service throughout the years in the 26th District. “We are honored to have selected Ms. Cabral-Arreola as this year’s Unsung Heroine for her leadership, remarkable contributions, and extraordinary volunteer efforts in both education and feeding the needy,” said Commissioner Tobolski.
