SGA Youth & Family Services Annual Benefit

| June 15, 2018 | Parties

“Building on Promise,” SGA Youth & Family Services’ Annual Benefit raised over $1 Million to provide life-changing services in Chicago’s most challenged and underserved neighborhoods. Dr. Kyle Pruett, an international authority on child development, spoke about how positive parenting and involvement plays a role in helping children cope and advance; and what SGA is doing to change the cycle of poverty into the Cycle of Opportunity. SGA honored Donald Belgrad, Chairman Emeritus of Schnadig International Corporation with the Jean S. Meltzer Award, and presented Branda Joseph with the Joseph Pedott Youth Leadership Award. The evening’s event included a performance of original songs composed as part of The Lullaby Project, a partnership between SGA and the Negaunee Music Institute at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra that pairs expectant and parenting teens with composers, singers, and musicians to create and record original lullabies for their young children.
