20th Annual Graduates’ Luncheon
Presented By The Leader Council of Mercy Home
About the Event
Date: Friday, June 10th, 2022
Place: Marriott Marquis, 2121 S Prairie Ave, Chicago, IL
For 20 years, the Leader Council has worked to improve educational opportunities for young people at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls. The Graduates’ Luncheon is the Leader Council’s signature annual fundraising event. Join us as we celebrate this year’s graduates and help us ensure brighter futures for even more of Mercy Home’s kids.
All dollars raised through the Graduates’ Luncheon will support educational programs at Mercy Home, assuring that kids have the resources they need to overcome achievement gaps, such as math and reading workshops, job readiness programs, after-school coursework, tutoring, and more. Gifts before and during the event will be generously matched up to $150,000 by an anonymous donor and by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.
