As First Lady
Prior to being the First Lady of Illinois, Diana Rauner was a relatively unknown figure in the American society. However, since taking office in 2015, Rauner’s reputation and fame has skyrocketed. Alongside fame, her involvement in community and social works have increased significantly.
On Thanksgiving Day, Diana Rauner and her husband Bruce Rauner attended a brunch at A Safe Haven. On that day, the brunch organised by A Safe Haven hosted around 400 homeless people and were served with food, including Turkey and other fixings. Governor Bruce Rauner spoke during the banquet, “We’re very blessed in Chicago and the State of Illinois who dedicate their lives to giving back and helping those in need. The Good Lord put us on earth to do his work, to help each other, and work together to make the world a better place, which is exactly what Neli and the staff at A Safe Haven are doing every day. Diana and I are honored to support this wonderful organization and the excellent work they do on behalf of our community.”
Likewise, Diana Rauner is currently supporting early childhood initiatives, having been motivated during a visit to Dennis Early Childhood Center. Moreover, she acclaimed Rockford Public Schools for engaging in such a life-changing program. Besides all these, Rauner’s major work has been in the Ounce of Prevention Fund. As President of the organisation, Rauner has been collaborating with the Illinois government to ensure a successful future for children based in the state. However, the program has been shaken by a recent break up of government contracts to the Ounce of Prevention Fund. As a result, First Lady Diana Rauner is leading a lawsuit case against her husband’s government.
