A Night to Remember!

Steans Family Honored at Family Focus Gala
$484,000 raised for Family Focus programs

2014 Family Focus Gala chairs Mark and Mary Hoppe (right) led a Palmer House ballroom filled with Chicago business and civic leaders in a wonderful evening of celebration honoring the outstanding legacy of the Steans Family - Harrison & Lois and their daughters Heather, Jennifer and Robin. Special focus was on North Lawndale, where both the Steans Foundation and Family Focus are working to change the future for children and their families.

Special thanks

to our gala chairs, Mary and Mark Hoppe, the entire Steans Family, Susan and Richard Kiphart, Bernice Weissbourd, Ravinia, and all our event sponsors and attendees.

With your support, we’re helping families in North Lawndale and low-income communities all around Chicago give their children the best possible start in life.

Evening highlights:

*Addresses by Family Focus participants, present and past: Lawndale honor student Edward White (right) and Evanston Police Detective Tosha Wilson.
