“Picnic in the Park” at Ravinia – 2017 date coming soon!
Held on November 5, 2016 at Ravinia, this event featured special guest Christopher G. Kennedy, civic leader and former Merchandise Mart Chair.  In his words…

“When you have a big family, your world expands. You have an enormous number of experiences, each bringing its own, unique insight, expanding our minds and opening our hearts. There are baptisms and graduations, weddings and divorces. There are babies being born, and uncles and aunts being laid to rest, fun events and parties, dances and proms, alcoholism and drug abuse, academic honors and calls from the principal’s office, wins and victories, drugs and death, promotions at work and job loss, exciting beginnings, gun shots and terminal illness, goals and scores, homeruns and losses, and always more fun than all of those challenges combined.

With such a large family and so many experiences, the work of the Josselyn Center is never far from my mind.”

Thank you to Chris and the more than 200 guests for attending the 2016 event and for raising more than $235,000 in support of The Josselyn Center.
