Athena's Fund for Women & Girls

Athena  of Silverland Desserts

Athena’s Silverland Desserts and
The Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation

Have established a fund known as the Athena’s Silverland Desserts Fund for Women and Girls. The purpose of the Fund is to enhance the lives and self-esteem of women and girls in need.

Your donation would go a long way in paving the way for girls in achieving their potential and life long dreams of a meaningful career and independence. If you would like to make a donation, you can make a check payable to The Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation, with a note on the memo line that it is for Silverland Bakery Fund for Women and Girls.

In 2005, Athena was chosen as a model and spokeswoman for Unilever’s Dove® Pro-Age™ campaign, introducing skin care products targeted to women over the age of 50. This experience took her to an appearance on Oprah and a feature on The Today Show. It also took her to major media and talk show appearances in Canada and Spain, where she opened that country’s Dove® Pro-Age™ campaign.

Grateful for her good fortune and for the help she has received from others - including her clients and her hard-working employees - Athena has always believed in giving back to those less fortunate. Athena decided to use some of the proceeds from her Dove® experience to establish this fund in order to provide assistance in the local community.
