We can announce today with great pleasure that Northwest Home for the Aged (NWHA)/ Park Plaza will be granting a $5 million dollar endowment contribution to the ATT for the REACH program. ATT was one of three recipients of a significant endowment gift from NWHA/Park Plaza. This is the largest program gift that the ATT has ever received and we are extremely grateful to the individuals that are responsible for this. In particular, we thank long-time ATT Board member and past president Stephen J. Landes for his efforts in helping us secure this gift. We are also most grateful for the leadership of Alan Caplan, the President of NWHA/Park Plaza, for his vision and dedication to the Jewish day school children of Chicago.
