Amate Magic: 4/21/18

We hope you will be able to join us on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the Aon Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier in Chicago. We look forward to inviting back Cardinal Cupich, NBC Newsanchor Michelle Relerford, and the band everyone is talking about... The Walk-Ins.

We will be honoring a dear friend, Rev. Ronald J. Lewinski, STL, posthumously with the Mary Ellen Nolan Guardian Angel Award. Father Ron was a very kind and generous man and we are so grateful for the support he gave to Amate House.

We are also honoring Nancy Zachar Fett, an alumna from 1990-1991 with the Founders' Award. Nancy is an Associate Professor of Social Work at Loras College.
