The Junior Council


Category : Participating Charities

The Junior Council is a group of young professionals living in and around the Chicagoland area.

Our membership ranges in a variety of professional backgrounds, pooling our resources and talents to support our jointed interest in helping to raise awareness and funds to support our cause: supporting the Adolescent and Pediatric AIDS & HIV Programs at Children’s Memorial Hospital.

The Heart of our Operation
The Junior Council supports the Pediatric and Adolescent HIV and AIDS programs of Children’s Memorial Hospital.

Established in 1987 by Dr. Ram Yogev and Dr. Ellen Chadwick, The CMH HIV and AIDS Program cares for more children and adolescents than any other pediatric HIV service in the region.

Our mission is to support the clinic and ensure all children with HIV/AIDS, regardless or their ability to pay, have access to high-quality pediatric healthcare.

Lanning Art Gallery brings summer art camp to kids~gallery-23

“All kids need art in their lives”, says gallery owner, Peggy Lanning, “even in these trying times.” 

And that is the goal of her charity fundraiser, to expose children who normally would not be introduced to the art world. They plan 1-week and 2-week camps for elementary school children but during the summer when there’s more time for them to learn something new outside reading, writing and arithmetic. Peggy celebrates her gallery’s 22nd anniversary, representing national and international artists and their fine art and looks forward to sharing them with the children.
