By serving society’s most vulnerable citizens, Misericordia also serves the families who want the best for them, yet cannot provide it at home.
The Family Fest is their biggest fundraiser and is open for all ages. Nearly 13,000 people from all around Chicago and the suburbs flock to the Misericordia campus for a wonderful afternoon of food, fun, drink, live entertainment, kids games and rides, bingo, raffles, shopping and more. The Mane in Heaven minis will be visiting from 1-3.
