Join us on October 20th at the Chicago History Museum
as we raise funds for our services
and celebrate our very special guest of honor:

Maureen R. Kelly, LCSW, Executive Director

maureen-headshot-june-2017.jpgAfter nearly 25 years of leadership at Cathedral, Maureen has announced that she will step down from her position in early 2018.  She has made an indelible impact on our past, present and future, and we want to make sure she is properly fêted!  Please join us as we celebrate her achievements and help us make history in her honor by raising $75,000 to support our mental health services for the underserved.

This event will fund critical programs for people who would otherwise not be able to afford mental health care.  We treat a wide spectrum of needs, from grief, to chronic illnesses like depression and bipolar disorder to post traumatic stress disorder.  Beyond the diagnosis are people struggling and vulnerable – and their ability to access quality, affordable mental health care at Cathedral can transform lives.  We see this week after week - individuals and couples who are working hard with us to heal pain, realize goals, make sense of difficult times and ultimately, to live fuller lives.  Your support helps make this possible.

Fall Fête will feature some of Maureen’s favorite things: live music, poetry, and travel, to name a few. And it wouldn’t be a Cathedral party without plenty of good food and drink – heavy appetizers and food stations from presenting sponsor, Limelight Catering & The Revel Group, and a full bar.  Tickets $110 through October 1st, $150 thereafter.
