Project H.O.O.D.'s Fifth Annual Gala:
Making the Impossible Possible
Please join Project H.O.O.D. on Friday, June 1, 2018 at Theater on the Lake for our Fifth Annual Fundraising Gala as we honor our sponsors and friends. This year's theme is Making the Impossible Possible and we are very grateful for those who help us in our tremendous work.
We are excited to announce that this year's gala is co-chaired by Richard Edelman, President and CEO of communications marketing firm, Edelman, Todd Ricketts of the Chicago Cubs and Sylvie Légère Ricketts, co-founder of the Policy Circle.
“We are ecstatic to help commemorate Project H.O.O.D.’s five years of efforts and successes with empowering people in the community,” said Todd Ricketts. “We look forward to bringing more light to the amazing accomplishments of Project H.O.O.D. and its core mission,” added Sylvie Légère Ricketts.
Project H.O.O.D.'s work relies on the donations we receive through our fundraising efforts and we are grateful that our Gala Committee is working hard to make this year's event a success. The committee is comprised of professionals from the Chicagoland area. We are grateful for their dedication to Project H.O.O.D.
Pastor Corey B. Brooks, Project H.O.O.D.'s Executive Director, says, “We are so proud of everything we’ve been able to accomplish over these past 5 years.
"Helping others in the community reach their potential and fulfill their dreams is a lifelong mission for all of those who continue to support Project H.O.O.D.
"The gala will be a celebration of those accomplishments as well as a continued opportunity to galvanize and strengthen efforts for the next chapter of our journey.”
