You are invited to join DuPagePads on Wednesday, November 6th at Benedictine University for a warm breakfast, uplifting message and information about new programs and developments at DuPagePads. Lastly, the breakfast’s keynote speaker, Christopher G. Kennedy will captivate our audience with a story of inspiration.
Starting promptly at 7:00 am, the same time that clients are leaving the shelter at the Interim (Overnight) Housing sites, a bell is rung and an invocation is given. The breakfast continues as the sun rises through the half-moon windows of the Krasa Center at Benedictine University in Lisle.
During the breakfast, attendees will hear from Carol Simler, DuPagePads Executive Director on the agency’s mission to end homelessness and latest updates on program developments.
Speaking from their heart and past experiences, a client of DuPagePads shares the impact their case managers and support services has had on their life. Following this honest reflection will be our keynote speaker, Christopher G. Kennedy.
Chris Kennedy, son of Robert and Ethel Kennedy, is the eighth of their eleven children. He and his wife, Sheila, reside with their four children in suburban Chicago.
Chris has a vast background in investments and management, involvement as a board member with the Chicago Alliance to End Homelessness and experience as founder of Top Box Foods (a non-profit, hunger-relief organization throughout Chicago). He is sure to deliver an inspiring message at this year’s 11th Annual Wake Up Your Spirit Breakfast.
