At Peck Ritchey, our attorneys are involved in various organizations that raise money for great causes near and dear to our hearts and the hearts of our clients. As attorneys practicing in the areas of elder law, guardianship and estate and trust litigation, many of our clients or their loved ones are living with severe cognitive, developmental and physical challenges. The courage, spirit and determination of these loved ones inspire us at Peck Ritchey to participate in charitable and other worthwhile causes.

One of the organizations that is close to the heart of associate attorney, Cameron DeGuerre is the Auxiliary Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The Auxiliary Board is composed of young professionals who raise money to support research programs at Northwestern. For the past two years, the board has been supporting the work of Dr. Sunt Das and Northwestern’s Brain Tumor Institute to advance the research and treatment of brain tumors, like the tumor that ended the life of the famed Ted Kennedy. Currently, an adult with a malignant brain tumor is only 30 percent likely to survive five years, showing the desperate need for Northwestern’s research.

The Auxiliary Board’s annual event “Summer Lovin’” will be held this Friday, June 18th at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The event will showcase the museum, live music, 13 dining stations, 8 premium bars and Chicago Magazine’s “Most Outstanding Singles of 2010.”

So come support a great cause! You can buy your tickets at the door.
