Our Club

The Zonta International, Oak Brook, Illinois Chapter is a group of professional women who strive to improve the lives of women throughout the world and in our local community. The club performs several service projects throughout the year, including partnering with Poised for Success to assist with clothing intake and fundraising raffles, volunteering at the Annual Gala of Family Shelter Service, and other key initiatives that benefit the local women of Oak Brook and surrounding areas. Each club has its own unique flavor and ethos.

 

The Zonta Club of Oak Brook started in 2012 and is experienced in service, advocacy, and fun!
