The 9th Annual Play for Maeve fundraiser will be held on Saturday, August 3, from 1:00-6:00 P.M. at Beverly Park. The fun-filled day for both kids of all ages and adults will include games and activities, music, raffles, a silent auction, an event t-shirt, food, and non-alcoholic beverages.
In 2005, St. John Fisher parishioners Matt and Denise (Lawler) McNicholas started The Maeve McNicholas Memorial Foundation in memory of their 2-year old daughter, Maeve, who died in the summer of 2004, just 36 hours after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. The foundation was established to help raise funds to support the research of pediatric brain tumors. Maeve’s Foundation has proudly donated nearly $600,000 to Lurie Children’s Hospital from this event alone and is honored to be an Affiliated Organization of the hospital.
Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago Research Center’s endless work in hopes of eliminating pediatric brain tumors. For more information, please call 773-401-3494 or visit the website.
