Larry and Patty Mix created Joey’s Angels in 1996 after their son lost his battle with leukemia. This organization helps raise money for the Leukemia Research Foundation (LRF) to help find a cure for this dreaded disease which has robbed many people of beloved family members and friends. The primary fundraising event is an annual golf outing.
Each year, this event grew, exceeding the previous year in both funds raised and attendance. In 2012 Joey’s Angles joined forces with the world-famous Bob Chinn’s Crab House in Wheeling, Illinois with its annual golf outing where supporters continued to swing for a cure. Historically, nearly $2.5 million in net revenues has been raised by Joey’s Angels in support of the Leukemia Research Foundation.

SOS Children’s Villages Illinois offers an innovative approach to traditional foster care.

The Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council (BYNC)
The Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council (BYNC), located at 1751 W. 47th Street in Chicago, is among the oldest not-for-profit community organizations in the United States, serving a large area of Chicago’s Southwest Side, which includes the communities of Brighton Park, McKinley Park, and New City. The Back of the Yards area suffered from social disorganization, unemployment, poor housing, and juvenile delinquency. BYNC was created in response to these growing social issues with a mission to enhance the general welfare of all residents, organizations, and businesses in the service area. This is accomplished by integrating social services and economic development programs into a single community-based intermediary organization, (the BYNC) which leads a holistic approach to the social problems that have plagued the Back of the Yards neighborhood and surrounding communities.
The Resurrection Project
The Resurrection Project was founded by six churches and concerned neighbors in 1990 to address the rising blight and crime in the Pilsen neighborhood. Each church committed $5,000 in seed funds. Since then, The Resurrection Project has turned that seed capital into more than $346 million in community investment in the form of homes for ownership, rental housing, and community facilities (including two child care centers) in its target neighborhoods of Pilsen, Little Village, and Back of the Yards neighborhoods in Chicago, IL.
