The 2023 Artist in All
by Lisa Paradis
The Misericordia Siblings Organization has done it again! The Artist in All was an amazing success and continues to be a Top Five Fundraiser for Misericordia, raising $950k this year. It takes an army of volunteers, our talented Art Instructors led by Julie O’Sullivan, generous Sponsors and the stunning Artwork our brothers and sisters have on display for an evening at a world-class venue, the Art Institute of Chicago..
Caitlin Deptula led the event as the Chairwoman with the support of Megan Biggam, SIBS Board President, in addition to Lois Gates, Anne Mills, Julie O’Sullivan, and the entire SIBS Board. Over 1,000 attended a mid-summer night at the Art Institute of Chicago. With 246 pieces of artwork and 235 residents participating, our brothers and sisters continue to outdo themselves, with the guidance of their talented art teachers. The artwork alone raised more than $125K this year.
The event would not be possible without the generosity of our Sponsors each year at all levels. It takes a village of generous individuals and families to ensure the success of The Artist in All each year. This year we had 140 Sponsors, including our Elite Presenting Sponsor, the Grateful Family of Tricia McGee and our Presenting Sponsors, Maryanne Marymont and The Villers Family. We also had the good fortune of several Grand Sponsors this year: The Cathy & Chris Cassin Family, The Rick & Katie Hielscher Family, The Mead Family, Northern Trust Bank, The Bob & Jennie Soudan Family, and The Connie & Bob Soudan Family.
We are thrilled with the outcome, and grateful for the continued commitment and support of this event that highlights the hard work and talent of our siblings. We look forward to seeing you all for our next The Artist in All on May 24, 2024, in the Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago - keep an eye out for details!
