There are moments in our lives here at MDE that we get a rare opportunity to participate in an event that honors a life by making a difference in the lives of others. The Tripp Healy foundation came to us a few months back seeking event production support for the Inaugural fundraiser and golf outing that would kick off the fundraising efforts of the foundation, created in memory of a loved one they had lost suddenly earlier this year. Those of us at MDE never had the opportunity to meet Tripp, but we can say with absolute certainty that he was an extraordinary person capable of great love. We know this just by meeting and working with his close circle of friends and family who worked tirelessly to bring this two par fundraising day together. We are thrilled to tell you that the Tripp Healy Foundation broke records with their fundraising, and we could not be more proud or happy of such a wonderful organization, who will begin doing great things with that money for some very deserving children!
We worked with this great group of people to produce a 450 person outdoor BBQ, complete with DJ, courtesy of Okyne Media Lab, and floral by Exquisite Designs Chicago. We thank them for their generosity and support of our client!
The Tripp Healy Foundation was created to celebrate Tripp’s legacy through community outreach and financial support for student athletes in the Chicago area. Rooted in the selflessness and care for others that Tripp Healy demonstrated in his life, the Tripp Healy Foundation was created with the goal of supporting the academic and athletic endeavors of student athletes in the Chicago area and toward bringing people together to celebrate Tripp’s memory. Tripp was a great friend and beloved by many. Additionally, he was an accomplished athlete. In the spirit of his selfless attitude, this awesome group of individuals came together with the aim to give student athletes in the Chicago area opportunities they might not otherwise have. We could not have been more thrilled or honored to be a part of something so wonderful.
