This event is packed full of fun in honor of our 2023 scholarship & grant recipients and of course our survivors!  This year we will be honoring Diane Pathieu of Chicago Channel 7 news and her brain tumor survivor husband Nick Adamski who have used their platform to shine a light on brain tumors.  The event will feature vendors, auctions, a shoe show, live entertainment and so much more. Previous shoe collections from ABC Channel 7 News anchor Cheryl Burton, Comedian/Talk Show Host Steve Harvey and Actress Ta’Rhonda Jones “Portia” from Empire.   Proceeds benefit both the 2023 scholarships and ongoing research programs.

Donate auction items or shoes by sending C/O Mary E. Smith Foundation, Inc. 2035 S. State St. #16-703 Chicago, IL. 60616. Include product information & value(s) in all correspondence.  Contact information@maryesmithfoundation.org with additional questions.
