Join us for this year’s Graduates’ Luncheon, on June 2, 2015, at the Hilton Chicago, featuring Keynote Speaker Chris Gardner, Entrepreneur, Author, Philanthropist and CEO of HAPPYNESS.
Every year, the Leader Council of Mercy Home gathers with noted community and business leaders at a luncheon to honor the accomplishments of Mercy Home’s student graduates.
Our Graduates’ Luncheon, hosted by the Leader Council of Mercy Home now celebrating its 13th year, raises critical funds to support our kids’ continued educations, and is a remarkable opportunity to celebrate the commitment our young people have made to realizing their academic potential.
The Graduates’ Luncheon is a unique Chicago event that features an address by a Mercy Home graduate, in addition to a featured keynote speaker. Past notables include the President of Ariel Investments, Mellody Hobson; bestselling author, Elizabeth Berg; celebrity chef, Charlie Trotter; architect and MacArthur genius grant winner, Jeanne Gang; author and filmmaker, Alex Kotlowitz; Chief Diversity Officer and Divisional Vice-President, Walgreens, Steve Pemberton.
The luncheon is the culmination of the Leader Council’s work year round to improve educational opportunities for young people at Mercy Home.
