Drew Mitchell, VP – Development (LaGrange, Ill.) and Jessica Vargas, Project Architect (Portage, Ind.) are board members of Junior Achievement of Chicago – Northwest Indiana Division, a nonprofit organization that provides unique learning experiences for students throughout Northwest Indiana. The Board recently announced its upcoming fundraising event, the second annual JA Prom Night.
On February 23, the Avalon Manner in Merrillville, Ind. will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland. All proceeds from the event will help fund JA’s programs, which are designed to strengthen students’ awareness of the critical pillars: Financial Literacy, Work Readiness, and Entrepreneurship.
JA programs start in kindergarten and go through high school, empowering the next
generation to own their economic success through every stage of life. Last school
year, JA of Chicago was in over 2,000 classrooms in Lake and Porter Counties and reached over 49,000 students.
Those wanting to support JA’s Northwest Indiana Division are encouraged to attend or sponsor this signature event. The event boasts a silent auction, prom court, and local basketball legend Pete Trgovich as the emcee. Register for the event…
