On Saturday September 9, 2017 Mary and Tom Lancaster attended the Red Tie Ball presented by Lewis University with new President Dr. David Livingston at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago.  WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling was the guest speaker.

All proceeds from the Red Tie Ball will be directed to the Lewis University Mission Fund, which provides additional support to the University’s most financially at-risk students. Since its inception in 2009, more than 250 students who were facing potential withdrawal from the University due to severe financial hardship have been able to continue their pursuit of a degree through support from the Mission Fund. Below is a link to view a couple of photos of the event.
