On October 4, over 100 people attended a fundraiser for Imerman Angels at a $4 million property for sale at 24W141 Hobson Road in Naperville. The fundraiser/open house marked the first time this English-style home, inspired by a 19th-century castle, was open to the public. Guests previewed the 12,000-square-foot residence while enjoying fine wines, hors d’oeuvres, chocolates, live music, and a photo booth.

Hosted by the property’s listing agents Fabio Brancati and Scott Gerami, the event raised nearly $1,000 for Imerman Angels; development director Isabelle Andrews was in attendance. The charity’s mission is to provide personalized connections that enable one-on-one support to cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers. Imerman Angels pairs individuals diagnosed with cancer and their caregivers with “Mentor Angels”—people who have faced cancer themselves, and now volunteer to offer support to others in a similar situation. Parings are customized by type of cancer, age, stage, and location. For more information, visit
