What's new at Chicago Lights?

Are you a former Chicago Lights tutor or student? Or do you know someone who is? We want to hear from you!

In the 2014-2015 school year, Chicago Lights Tutoring (formerly known as Fourth Pres Tutoring and Partners In Education) reaches a huge milestone as we celebrate 50 terrific years of serving Chicago's youth through academic and emotional support.

In honor of the upcoming landmark year, we are seeking Tutoring alumni to include in our database. By joining the network, you will be able to establish relationships with former, current, and future Chicago Lights participants, share and commemorate experiences with your tutor/tutee, and be notified of all the exciting 50th anniversary plans and events in the works. (Note: there are many fun and different ways to celebrate--you won't want to miss out!)

To join the network and help us celebrate 50 years of Chicago Lights Tutoring, please fill out this form.

If you have any specific questions, please contact the Communications Team at tutoring50communications@gmail.com.

Thank You for Coming to Carnaval!

Our thanks to the more than 500 people who joined us at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel on Friday, February 28, for a wonderful evening of dining and dancing to benefit the six programs of Chicago Lights.

Through your generosity, Carnaval raised more than $450,000--an event record!--to benefit the six programs of Chicago Lights. Thank you, thank you for your help changing lives.

"The biggest draw for us to Chicago Lights, both as volunteers and benefactors, has been the sense of being apart of a strong community that inspires others and leads by example. Chicago Lights has allowed both of us to share the gifts we have been so blessed with while gaining new perspective on the challenges our community faces."

--Craig and Alison Naish
