About the Event

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, this year’s event was held entirely online. Though we were not able to gather in person this year, the stories of our young people’s success that this event celebrates were still as powerful as always.

You can watch a recording of the live-stream event, which was first aired on June 2, to hear an inspiring address by a Mercy Home youth graduate and a keynote address by Hon. Timothy C. Evans, Chief Judge of the Cook County Circuit Court. Donations can still be made that support educational opportunities for Mercy Home youth.
