Chris Kennedy at UMMA Benefactors' Lunch

On Sunday April 9th, we celebrated UMMA at our Annual Benefactors' Lunch, in the company of some of our greatest supporters. We were delighted to have Illinois businessman and philanthropist Chris Kennedy join us and share his background and reasons for working in the community. We are grateful to Chris for his inspiring words! You can see photos below of the many supporters who joined us. Thank you to everyone who believes in UMMA and our mission to transform lives through education empowerment! To those who couldn't join us, we missed you and will be throwing another similar event soon. Stay tuned!
