Attend a Special Event

June 2, 2020

Our first ever virtual Graduates’ Luncheon event

Grad Luncheon 2020

Led by Mercy Home’s Leader Council, a volunteer board comprised of prominent professional women, the Graduates’ Luncheon raises resources that help us improve educational opportunities for our young people.

Because of need to continue social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the uncertainty of national and state emergency measures in the months ahead, this year’s event will be held entirely online.

The live-stream event will include many of the same features as the previous 17 years, but adapted for online participation. As always, it will feature an inspiring address by a Mercy Home youth graduate and a keynote address by a prominent public guest. This year’s keynote address will be provided by Hon. Timothy C. Evans, Chief Judge of the Cook County Circuit Court. RSVP here.
