At 4:22pm, on April 22nd – LINK’s Birthday, we toasted to 50 years! We celebrated the impact that LINK Unlimited Scholars, founded by John & Carolyn Parmer, has had on the lives of more than 2,200 African-American Scholars throughout the Chicagoland area. We are indeed proud of our past and focused on our future.
In addition, we ended our 50th Anniversary countdown with our 50th Anniversary Giving Campaign. Throughout this initial campaign, we exceeded our $10,000 goal by raising $10,500. (Our extended goal is to raise $50,000 by June 30th.) During this campaign, we engaged 25 donors – 32% being new donors! With an anonymous match ($1 for $1 up to $10,000), we raised a grand total of $20,500!!!! We could not have done this without your continued support, so thank you!!!
