Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Humanitarian Award Dinner Honoring Beth and Bruce White

May 21 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Big Shoulders Fund will honor the work of Beth and Bruce White at the Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Humanitarian Award Dinner on Friday, May 21, 2021 at the Hilton Chicago (720 South Michigan Avenue). The Whites’ support has made an impact on all aspects of Big Shoulders Fund’s work: as Patrons at Our Lady of Guadalupe School, as mentors through their White Family Scholarship Program (which has nearly 100 scholars), and as supporters of science and enrichment programs, hosting nearly 300 students every summer at Staddle Camp on their Brush Creek Ranch in Wyoming. Most recently, Beth and Bruce White made a $16 million, 10-year investment to fully fund the expansion of Big Shoulders Fund’s programming to Northwest Indiana.

Dinner Steering Committee members include Ellen and Jim O’Connor, Rita and John Canning, Liz and Kent Dauten, Virginia and Josh Hale, Sue and Tim Sullivan, and Monsignor Ken Velo, while Elizabeth Cole is chairing the Arrangements Committee.
