Our Back to School Party was a great success! A record 359 people attended our fall fundraiser on November 10 at Zella. We raised $9,375 in proceeds through event and raffle sales, which will make a big impact in paying for our students’ summer program costs and learning materials.
Our attendees were decked out in their college gear and enjoyed a survivor flip cup tournament and reminiscing about their college days. A big thank you for everyone who attended the event. A sincere thank you to the Minds Matter of Chicago Directors of Fundraising Jennifer Henderson, Irem Mertol and Adam Alexander for making the event a huge success!
