Celebrating the Building of a Brighter Future: Gala 2016

On Friday, May 27, 2016, ProjectHOOD had an elegant evening celebrating the, “Building For a Brighter Future,” at Galleria Marchetti.
Our annual Gala plays an important role in the financial support and visionary future of ProjectHOOD’s impactful programs and services. Last year’s wonderful evening would not have been possible without the generosity and support of individuals and companies who help us with our work.

Our Gala Chairman was Michael Paulsen. The Honorary Chairs were Governor Bruce & Diana Rauner. The Honorary Co-Chairs were David Kahnweiler, Vincent Kolber, Ed Miles, Comptroller Leslie & John Munger, Julie and Senator Jim Oberweis, Marty Ozinga, Brian Simmons and the Honorable Joe and Helene Walsh. We are thankful to all that share our passion to help bring change to Chicago’s south side.

ProjectHOOD is committed and focused to build, in the heart of Woodlawn, a community center, which has been designed to house innovative programming and services necessary to promote and sustain positive physical, social and economical change in our community.

We thank everyone who attended our 2016 Gala and we hope to see you this year!
