The 9th Annual Lakeshore Classic is family-oriented event that focuses its activities on raising educational awareness and drawing on the parallels between sports participation and academic achievement to encourage the region’s youth to follow a path of success.

This year we are expecting hundreds to attend our Corporate Luncheon and thousands to attend the games where more than 200 students athletes from the region and Chicagoland area will participate. Our theme this year is a “Step Up for Education”.

We are pleased to announce that from Washington, D.C., Mr. David J. Johns, Executive Director White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans will be this year’s luncheon speaker. In the past some of our speakers have been Bryce Drew, Bob Love, Gene Keady, Jesse White, Dick Barnett, Oscar Robertson, Junior Bridgeman and last year Lloyd McClendon.

We invite you to take advantage of this exceptional opportunity and purchase your luncheon ticket today. Your support is needed as we endeavor to keep our children motivated to learn, to be active and to become good citizens. These are moments that they will cherish for the rest of their lives. We would like to thank you in advance for helping to make that happen.
