E3 Gala Brings Community Together to Educate, Enrich, Empower

Our E3 Gala was a tremendous success. We celebrated the work we do everyday to educate, enrich, and empower the young people we serve, introduced many new people to our work, and inspired them to support the mission. Together, we welcomed 280 guests and raised $269,000 in gross revenue, surpassing our goal of $250,000 and 250 guests.

We had the honor of welcoming Dianne Robertson Braddock, her daughter and nephew. We received an inspiring keynote from Shermann “Dilla” Thomas on the power of relationships among youth in our communities and the crucial role longstanding community centers play in fostering those relationships. We also saw the return of Jacoby Cochran, from City Cast Chicago, as our master of ceremonies.

Mental Health Supports Are Central at the Carole Robertson Center

Integral to the learning and care the Carole Robertson Center for Learning provides is a dedication to meeting the mental and emotional needs of the children, families, and staff who are a part of our community. July’s Minority Mental Health Awareness Month encourages us to reflect on the role the Center plays in providing a safe and stable environment that prioritizes mental wellness for all.  

Since 1976, the Carole Robertson Center for Learning has been dedicated to educating, enriching, and empowering children and families through comprehensive child and family development programs.
