Skender Foundation Summer Eclipse Event 2017
Skender Foundation hosted its sixth annual fundraiser, Summer Eclipse, on July 20, 2017 at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA). This yearÕs event highlighted Chicago Youth Programs (CYP), an award-winning organization that serves children across the entire city with a simple philosophyÑto impact the long-term outcome of a childÕs life, you must serve the child long-term.
A total of $400,000 was raised in one night by sponsors and more than 500 event attendees. Of that, $30,000 will be donated to CYP while the balance will be dispersed to other charities dedicated to education and wellness throughout the year. In 2016, Skender Foundation donated to more than 100 different charity organizations.
