A Special Thank you 

Sharon Girulat who was a champion of the project in the early stages and helped bring us to the point we are today. Without her tireless efforts and support, we would not have come as far as we have. The gratitude in our hearts for her runs deep. Her involvement in Benefit All was an inspiration for the charitable component of VOUP, and she continues to be an inspiration to many. She is known as the Mother of Chicago because her philanthropy and charity work has touched so many.   LinkedIn

Mike Richardson whose photographic talents facilitated our first steps into the digital space, lent a degree of talent to this project that cannot be overstated. He has worked with Getty, Nasa, and Boeing, and we will always be honored that he worked with us. His time spent with VOUP was a contribution we won't soon forget. Website  LinkedIn
