2018 Storybook Gala

The Wood Family Foundation is thrilled to host our 4th Annual Storybook Gala. This year’s event will celebrate the work of our Pitch In program and honor the commitment of Board Member, Tony Hoban. Co-Chairs Kerry & Sarah Wood, Colleen & Brendan Carroll, Brooke & Graham Allen, and Cece & Tom Ricketts are teaming up with phenomenal vendors to make this Evening in Oz a night to remember! 

The Pitch In program is embedded within our partner schools, pairing 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.
