Every year, the Leader Council of Mercy Home for Boys & Girls gathers with noted community and business leaders at a luncheon to honor the accomplishments of Mercy Home’s student graduates. Now in its 17th year, the Graduates’ Luncheon raises critical funds to support our kids’ continued educations and is a remarkable opportunity to celebrate the commitment our young people have made to realize their academic potential.
The Graduates’ Luncheon is a unique Chicago event that features an address by a Mercy Home graduate, in addition to our featured keynote speaker, Alex Kotlowitz, author of An American Summer: Love and Death in Chicago and There Are No Children Here. The luncheon is the culmination of the Leader Council’s year-round work to improve educational opportunities for young people at Mercy Home.
