Thank you for joining us for our 14th annual spring luncheon, Celebrating Women, Transforming Lives (CWTL) on Friday, May 17, 2024 at the beautiful Mesón Sabika!

We hope you felt inspired by the moving stories of our young adult speaker, Ayshia Johnson; Lives Transformed Award honoree, Michelle Lufrano; and Transforming Lives Award honoree, Assistance League Chicagoland West.

Thank you to our generous event sponsors for their support. A special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor Perma-Seal and our Matching Grant Donor, Duly Health and Care Charitable Fund, for matching the first $20,000 in donations in honor of this event.

Guests were treated to a beautiful luncheon experience, emceed by ABC7’s Judy Hsu. During this moving celebration, we presented the Lives Transformed Award to a Bridge alumna, Michelle Lufrano, and the Transforming Lives Award to Assistance League Chicagoland West.
