The heart of Hope Junior lies in a simple idea: If you believe in a person and build trust, that person can overcome impossible odds.
Since 1989, the activities of Hope Junior, from homework help to basketball, have been supported by the annual Hope Junior Benefit. Kids and teens benefit year round from the positive experiences, new opportunities and high-quality activities offered by Hope Junior at Marillac House in Chicago's Garfield Park neighborhood. The goal of Hope Junior is to provide youth with positive experiences at a young age that will translate into positive choices in the future.
We invite you to join us once again for an evening of music and dancing, featuring the Empty Pockets. The evening will include a silent auction with global treasures, athletic tickets, unique artwork, and gift certificates to restaurants, hotels, and travel destinations.
