Summer Fundraiser / Spring Party Recap

We’re excited to gather in-person this summer for an outdoor fundraising event on Friday, July 23. The beautiful Chicago Highlands Club is the perfect backdrop for an evening of food, drinks and fundraising for our Scholars. More details about tickets, sponsorships, and raffles will be shared soon.

Please email Liam Bresnahan, Board Member and Event Co-Chair, if you are interested in volunteering for the event.  We have several different ways for our supporters to get involved.

The Legacy Guild also holds an annual Spring party which serves as the Foundation’s primary fundraiser to raise money for new and existing scholars.

The Eighth Annual Spring Fundraiser was held on February 29, 2020 at Fitzgerald’s in Berwyn. The event raised more than $145,000 dollars thanks to the overwhelming generosity and support of so many. The night featured dinner from Jimmy’s Place (Forest Park), open bar, live music from Wedding Banned, silent auction and raffle prizes.

One key sponsor since the beginning of the charity has been FNBC Bank & Trust. During the event, Legacy Guild President Bill Carney presented Marty Madden, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer at FNBC Bank & Trust, with the Community Champion Award. This award was presented to FNBC Bank & Trust for their dedication to improving the Lyons Township community through their generous support of local charitable organizations.

In addition, we are grateful to Beth McLawhorn, mother of two scholars, for bravely sharing her personal story of the passing of her husband and the support provided by The Legacy Guild and the community. She reminded us all on why we raise money and the important impact of our organization.

Thank you again to all of the amazing volunteers and sponsors!
