Social Events

  • I'm so happy I joined DGAN when I moved to the western suburbs! The Club has been hugely helpful to make me feel like the Downers Grove area is home.

  • Finding DGAN helped me survive our move to Illinois. Before I found the group, I had a hard time finding new friends or women with similar interests. It's great to find a group where everyone is interested in meeting new people and having fun!

  • I have met so many ladies in our community and my kids have met many new friends before even starting school. It's nice to see familiar faces when walking around town.

What we do?
Each month we enjoy a number of social activities, from book clubs, trivia night, bunco, and couples date nights, to family-friendly outings and play dates. Philanthropy is also important to us. Each year we choose a different local charity that we support through events throughout the year.
Why Newcomers?
We offer lots of opportunities to get involved through Newcomers via social events and community outreach with local charities. This can include participation in one of our regular monthly activities or other special events, volunteering to lead or serve on a committee, or helping the community through one of our fundraisers.
Who are we?
We are a fun group of over 170 women living in Downers Grove and the surrounding area. Members are new and longtime residents, professional women, stay at home/work at home moms, single & married women. We enjoy the opportunity to meet and get to know other women in the area through social activities and fundraising events for local charitable organizations. Members reside in Downers Grove, Lombard, Woodridge, Oak Brook, Darien, Westmont, Lisle, and Clarendon Hills.
