Grace House Luncheon

Early in November, Grace House held its Annual Luncheon with Mrs. Richard M. Daley acting as the Honorary Chair.  The theme for the event was “Lend a Heart, Lend a Hand.”  And those present did just that.  GH residents lifted their voices in song and shared some of their stories leaving all the guests moved by the challenges that they have faced.  The Barlow Center Basic Culinary Arts Class prepared the meal; the Advanced Culinary Arts Class created the desserts – both works of art.  In addition to lending a hand as mentors and tutors, luncheon guests were very generous.  More than $8,000 was raised from the event thanks to efforts of the Grace House Advisory Board chaired by Nicole Neeley and hard-working GH staff members led by Mary Dolan, OP, GH Administrator.
