Over 150 supporters attended The Legacy Guild’s summer fundraiser on Friday, July 23, 2021 at Chicago Highlands Club. The event featured an open bar, dinner, bourbon tasting with ESPN Chicago’s Carmen DeFalco, wine tasing with Elevage Wines, silent auction and raffle. Entertainment was provided by Henry JBC. The event was a huge success and raised over $90,000 for the scholarship fund.
One very real and moving part of the evening was Jody LaVoie, mom of two current Scholars, sharing her family’s story. It was a reminder of the need and the impact that we are all together making. Jody thanked everyone for supporting the children in our community who have lost a parent. She knows that those who have passed away are looking down and are forever grateful.
We thank all our volunteers, sponsors and donors and everyone who was involved in allowing us to gather together in person to raise awareness and scholarships for those in our community who have lost a parent. Subscribe to our monthly newsletter to learn more about our next event.
