The Midtown Educational Foundation’s (MEF) 27th Annual Reach for Excellence Dinner provided an electric energy as roughly 450 new and old friends converged at the Four Seasons on a brisk October night. The familial atmosphere was evident to each guest, mirroring the feeling one feels when walking into one of MEF’s centers. As Executive Director, Glenn Wilke, said, “what we teach at the centers, we practice at our events.”
Over 540 advocates and friends came out this past Tuesday, October 17th to support Midtown Educational Foundation (midtown-metro)! Over $1MM was raised on behalf of students and their families as Ed Wehmer of Wintrust and Kristi Savacool of Aon Hewitt were honored as some of Chicago's finest executives!
MEF's 23rd Reach for Excellence Awards Dinner raised more than $750,000 toward programs for Chicago's at-risk youth!
The award, now in its 23rd year, honors individuals of strong character and integrity who lead exemplary professional and personal lives.
