The 2017 Holiday Benefit was a HUGE success. The evening was an opportunity for all of us to be inspired by what we can accomplish when we set our minds to it. YOU donated over $20,000 to support our Summer Business Internship and Scholarship programs. The young African American harpist created a holiday ambience for our donors, our 2017 and past program participants, our generous sponsors, community members, family, and friends.  The room was anchored with a silent auction table circled with a vast  amount of sports, restaurants, and Chicagoland experiences.  We also raffled a 43’ inch 4K HD color tv.  The testimonies of our visionary leader and program participants touched the souls of everyone present. The 2017 Holiday Benefit was definitely a night to remember.

The AGB Foundation exists to open doors for minority youth and young adults from struggling neighborhoods in Chicago. Through our foundation’s programs, we recruit young leaders, reward motivated students, assist families in need, and prepare the next generation of our workforce.

It’s a mission that we believe in with all our hearts, but we can’t achieve our goals alone. Your help is essential. Please support the AGB Foundation by attending our Holiday Benefit. Reserve your spot today, or become a sponsor! Either way, you’ll be helping us change lives, today!
