Irene's Dream Luncheon

Lytia Brock, Grant Recipient

Adrienne Parkes, Grant Recipient


If the past year and a half has taught us anything it has been resilience, perseverance and strength, traits frequently found in the single moms the Bartko Foundation supports in their self-sufficiency journey. And it has reminded us of how thankful and grateful we are for all of you.

Despite the uncertainty, worries, fears and struggles, you dug deep and gave generously in support of our 2021 Irene's Dream Virtual Fundraiser. Because of you and the match received from one of a long-time and magnanimous supporter, we have exciting news to announce. The total amount raised for this year's event was:


We are deeply grateful for this amazing support that will help us continue to assist women that reach out seeking assistance in their efforts to improve their lives and the lives of their children, helping to make dreams come true.

Thank you.
