PEAK VIP Appreciation Reception
Gratitude never goes out of style!
PEAK recently received a generous $1M gift from long-time PEAK supporter and dear friend, John Raitt, in loving memory of his late wife Mary Mahler Raitt. In celebration of the Raitt family gift and the relentless support of all PEAK donors, the 2016 PEAK VIP Appreciation Reception was held on November 10th.
Musical entertainment was provided by a Holy Trinity freshman, and each guest was welcomed by one of our PEAK scholars. Kind words were shared by PEAK's Board Chair Craig Dean, John Raitt, CEO and Executive Director Bob Thomas, and several past and present PEAK scholars. The evening was not only intended to thank past and current supporters, but to share plans of growth and expansion. In addition to tripling the size of PEAK's staff (from 1 to 3), PEAK will award 15 scholarships for the incoming class of 2021 (10 scholarships were awarded last year).
Special thanks to Donna Goodman Events, Pure Wine Company. and Chicago Scenic Studios for providing the night's catering, wine and champagne, and decor. All event sponsors are represented below- thank you for making the 2016 VIP a huge success!
