Spirit of L'Arche
Once a year, L'Arche Chicago honors friends of our community who have believed in our mission and have taken action to partner with us and make a difference. The Spirit Of L'Arche Award is presented to people who have assisted L'Arche to grow and develop into the community we have today.
You are invited to join us in celebration of this year's awardees, John Biggs and Elbert Lott at Hawthorn Country Club on June 11, 2018 at 5:00 pm.
John Biggs was one of the first board members of L’Arche Chicago in 2001. Inspired by the mission of L'Arche to create meaningful lifelong homes, John has spent the last 17 years serving not only L'Arche Chicago but also L'Arche USA. John spearheaded the L'Arche Chicago Golf Classic, successfully running 5 consecutive events that brought new stability, growth, and momentum to L'Arche Chicago.
Elbert Lott was the first core member of L'Arche Chicago in 2000. Elbert has shared his optimism, faith, and joy in serving with those in L'Arche Chicago's ever since. Elbert was born in Cherokee, Georgia and later moved to the south side of Chicago until he moved into L'Arche Chicago's Angel House in 2001, quickly saying with conviction, "I plan to stay at L'Arche forever."
