SAVE THE DATE: The More Than Ever Education Fund Luncheon

If everyone who reads this blog would send just $10.00 in support of the More Than Ever Educational Fund, established by Gregory Maire and Michael Horvich, and administrated by the premier Chicago area not-for-profit La Casa Norte, we could instantly increase the funds raised for the fund by $5,000.00! If everyone who reads this blog would attend the luncheon, besides being great to see you there, we could instantly raise $50,000 for the MTE EdFund! 

The scholarship fund enables youth, ages 17-25, confronting homelessness to receive tuition scholarship and other support in obtaining an education which will help improve their lives, that of their families, and of society in general!

During the event, guests will learn more about the work of La Casa Norte and hear a brief presentation from me as well as from our youth participants. There will be a guest speaker; Carmita Vaughn, Founder and President of the Surge Institute, on "Bringing Light to Education for Underserved Youth." 

The First Annual Gregory Maire Leadership Award will be presented to The North Shore Exchange of Glencoe, Illinois, for their commitment to and work with La Casa Norte and the Youth in College Program. 

A raffle table with wonderful prizes will be available and a delicious lunch will be served. Each guest will receive a fun trinket from Michael's Museum: A Curious Collection of Tiny Treasures, a permanent exhibit it at Chicago Children's Museum on Navy Pier.
