Thank you for considering joining us at the Wood Family Foundation’s 5th Storybook Gala on Friday, September 20, 2019, benefiting our middle school-focused programs and services. This year, we are thrilled to bring to life the childhood classic Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson, and explore how we can all empower more students to write their own stories and forge their own paths. We expect to welcome nearly 500 guests, including civic, social, philanthropic, corporate, and education leaders.

Your support will help us continue expanding our premiere Pitch In program, which serves Chicago’s 4th–8th graders through a school partnership and after-school mentorship model.
