Spirit of L'Arche
As a part of our Funding the Spirit of L'Arche campaign, 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, Geraldine "Gerry" McAuliffe, and David Lee at Ivanhoe Country Club on June 27, 2016 at 5:30 pm.
Gerry McAuliffe came to L'Arche Chicago via the very first L'Arche home in Trosly, France. After working with Jean Vanier, Gerry became an intregal part of founding L'Arche Chicago. Sister Maria Zeimen, founding director for L'Arche Chicago and 2015 Spirit of L'Arche honoree, stated that, "Without Gerry, there would be no L'Arche Chicago."
David Lee, President of Wintrust Lake Forest Bank and Trust, will be honored because his support for the L’Arche Golf Classic Tournaments have been the catalyst for two new homes for L’Arche.
The Spirit of L'Arche Awards Dinner will serve as the final event of our 2016 L'Arche Chicago Golf Classic. Cocktails, Dinner, and our Live Auction all being at 5:30 pm. Please join us for an evening of celebration and joy as we honor these outstanding friends of L'Arche Chicago!
All proceeds from the Golf Classic and Awards Dinner will provide housing and care for core members (persons with developmental/intellectual disabilities) living in our L'Arche community.
