Summer Eclipse is Skender Foundation's anticipated summer gala that raises awareness and funds for those who impact health, education and wellness. By supporting these deserving philanthropists, the foundation aims to empower and inspire others to reach their full potential, as well as to motivate the Chicagoland community to share its time, talent and funding with those in need.
This year, in partnership with Titan Electric, Skender Foundation will highlight Little Wish Foundation. Founded in Indianapolis in 2010, Little Wish Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that grants wishes of pediatric oncology patients. The wishes may be small (most cost between $500 and $1,000), but their impact on children's lives is immeasurable. The organization services fourteen children's hospitals in six states, including Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and Rush University Children's Hospital . To date, Little Wish has granted over 1,600 little wishes to children with cancer during their treatment period.
Founded in 2012 as a 501(c)(3) public foundation, Skender Foundation believes that all people should have access to resources and relationships that help them make good life decisions.
We also believe giving should be fun and uniting. Each year in downtown Chicago, we host two prolific fundraising/awareness events that connect business professionals and charitable organizations in seeking positive change.
Equally important, we understand that just donating money isn't enough. To sustain community education and wellness, we must also invest ourselves - our time, our care, our compassion and our ideas. Only by directly engaging positive change can we create a culture of giving and feel the impact of its rewards.
