MIDTOWN EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION - ¡Viva Sam Bell!" SPRING SOIREE

MAY 5, 2023 - 7:00P-11:00P - CHICAGO, IL

 

Sam proudly served as a youth mentor and volunteer with Midtown Educational Foundation (MEF) for more than 10 years. He believed in MEF's mission to "guide low-income urban youth in Chicago along pathways of success." MEF provides enrichment programs that "embrace the dignity of the person by focusing on academic excellence, virtue development, individual attention, and parental engagement."

 

In addition to Sam's tenure as a dedicated mentor and volunteer, he was also passionate and dedicated to making MEF events a great success. The Spring Soiree was a favorite event of Sam's and this year's 2023 Soiree is being held in his honor.

 

Please support Midtown Educational Foundation's mission by attending the event or sending a donation in memory of Sam Bell. We look forward to seeing you there!
