The Polish Women's Alliance is based in Park Ridge, Illinois and is over 100 years old. Wisconsin has several chapters, and Diane Reeve is the State President of the organization. Some of the Wisconsin chapters are also close to 100 years old. This organization has provided insurance needs, adult programs, children's programs and many charitable activities for the general public. The PWA of America is a non-profit organization and is part of the Polish National Alliance. All money made from such events is given back to the people in forms of scholarships for their children and other valuable purposes. This is a way to present the Polish culture to the American people. Poland has always been a strong supporter of American causes. Take the time to enjoy some good food, while letting your children have some clean wholesome fun.
