2022 Founder’s Day BBQ

Published 22 July 2022

Last week, we hosted our annual Founder’s Day BBQ to celebrate 22 years of L’Arche Chicago! Over 70 people gathered in the backyard of Peace House with burgers, hotdogs, and plenty of dessert to go around. Laura Wassilak and Katie Arnold, two of the first assistants to share life in Angel House, told stories of the early days of L’Arche Chicago and how it has impacted their lives.

In November, our supporters helped fund the revamp of this space by giving over $30,000 in one day! We have put it towards new accessible sidewalks, a new fence, and new landscaping to create a beautiful space to host people in. Without the generosity of our supporters, this event couldn’t have happened! We hope you can join us next time as we plan on hosting more gatherings at Peace House for many years to come!

We hope you enjoy these photos from the event!
