Hearts for Housing 2013 Shoots the Moon!

Young Professionals Board at Hearts for Housing

On March 8th the Young Professional Board presented the 8th annual Hearts for Housing fundraiser. This event is a Hearts card tournament with a very large and diverse raffle that keeps growing every year, making Hearts the most popular event in LCBH history!

Kirkland & Ellis has generously hosted this event for the last four years and they really outdo themselves in support of safe and decent housing in Chicago. Their beautiful conference space was bursting with a sold- out crowd! Todd Maynes, LCBH Board Vice-President and Kirkland & Ellis partner personally sold $14,000 in raffle tickets! It was a charmed and electric evening, guests caught up with old friends, made new ones, and played cards for a great cause!

Thanks to the hard work and contributions of the Young Professionals Board, LCBH Board of Directors, sponsors, raffle donors, staff and you LCBH was able to raise over $43,000 to support program services that assist those most vulnerable in our Chicago community who are facing debilitating housing issues. It is truly amazing what can be accomplished when people come together to improve our community! Thank you!
