meyers & flowers sponsors lawyers lend a hand to youth 2017 spring award
Meyers & Flowers is honored to support Lawyers Lend-A-Hand to Youth’s many volunteer and mentoring efforts by sponsoring the organization’s 2017 Spring Awards Dinner. The evening will include the presentation of the Abraham Lincoln Marovitz Philanthropic Award to Judge Thomas L. Hogan and Terry Murphy and the Thomas A. Demetrio Award to an outstanding Chicago tutoring or mentoring organization.
Since 1995, the local Chicago legal community has come together to support at-risk youth through Lawyers Lend-A-Hand to Youth’s one-on-one tutoring and mentoring programs. The organization has awarded millions of dollars in grants and positively affected the lives of thousands of youth through the Thomas A. Demetrio Award of Excellence and other named grants at its Spring Awards Dinner. Meyers & Flowers is proud to join our colleagues and honor our peers at this annual event.
This year 13 programs will be awarded grants at the dinner celebration. In addition, Lawyers Lend-A-Hand to Youth will also highlight the organization’s recently launched Lend-A-Hand Tutoring at the CBA. The program offers free one-to-one tutoring and mentoring to students from the Montessori School of Englewood, a public charter school. Weekly tutoring sessions take place during the school year at the Chicago Bar Association.
