The Chicago Sun-Times‘ Splash publication also provided exclusive media sponsorship.

“Supporting children in the earliest years truly impacts the rest of their lives,” says trustee Sabrina Gracias, who co-chaired the luncheon with trustee and alumna Cari Sacks, ’91. “We are very grateful for the incredible generosity shown by our guests, faculty, and sponsors, which will enable us to always put children first.”
