The Storybook Gala celebrates the Wood Family Foundation and our Pitch In program. The Pitch In program is embedded within our partner school buildings, and pairs 4th-8th grade Chicago Public Schools students with high-quality mentors and a strong curriculum, to ensure students develop the mindsets and skills necessary to transition to high school successfully. Pitch In also strives to make a sizable impact on the school communities we serve, through increased talent & capacity, access to unique experiences, and an abundance of resources.
