Biennial Children's Medical Fund Luncheon
In 1989, the National Philoptochos Ladies Society established the Children's Medical Fund Luncheon with the specific purpose of aiding critically ill children. Since then, 3.59 million dollars has been given in grants throughout the country to children's health care organizations and innovative programs and services committed to improving and/or sustaining the health of children. The Metropolis of Chicago Philoptochos has the honor of hosting the 2019 CMF Luncheon to be held on November 16, 2019. Grants approved will be distributed to pediatric hospitals and other healthcare organizations providing care and services to children throughout the Metropolis of Chicago. All 57 parishes within the Metropolis will be notified of the grant application process and encouraged to seek out potential grant recipients within their local community.
