Our annual Holiday Benefit is more than a celebration of the season. It’s an opportunity for all of us to be inspired by what we can accomplish when we set our minds to it. 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!
