Why: Aparecio is a nonprofit organization founded to accelerate the academic achievement of low-income, high-potential, minority women throughout Chicago through mentoring and special scholarships. As a new Foundation, they need to raise considerable funds through private donations, government grants, and their own creative initiatives with an ultimate goal of $1.5 million. DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH will be the first of their major fund-raising events. Through the generous support of quality companies and notable Chicagoans, we will have what is certain to be an extraordinary and memorable evening!
