Another Successful More Than Ever Education Fund Luncheon

May 8, 2018

Dear Family and Friends,
Applauding you for your financial and/or moral support of the More Than Ever Education Fund in memory of Gregory Maire, as administrated by La Casa Norte, a premier Chicago area not-for-profit supporting youth and families confronting homelessness. 

Approximately 150 people attended the luncheon and we raised over $50,000.00 for the Youth in College Program which currently is supporting 25 students. In the three years since the MTE Education Fund began, we have raised close to $150,000.00.

I wish you could see in person, the faces of these students as they radiate love, joy, self-confidence, and gratitude as they look towards a hopeful future. Thank you so much for being there for us.

If you were planning on making a donation but haven’t gotten around to it yet, please mail your check, made payable to the MORE THAN EVER EDUCATION FUND, to La Casa Norte, 2845 West Mc Lean, Chicago, Illinois 60647.

Again, thank you so much,

Pictured below are seven students who entered the personal growth essay contest. Most of the 25 students were able to attend the luncheon, several had exams or student teaching etc.
