Chicago, Illinois resident Jerome Eberle is a former publishing assistant for Booklist Magazine, a book review journal of the American Library Association. Jerome Eberle enjoys supporting charitable organizations, and regularly contributes to Catholic Charities.
Catholic Charities is an organization that has been active for over 98 years with more than 150 programs in the Chicago area alone. One of these programs is Loving Outreach to Survivors of Suicide, or LOSS, a free, non-denominational program created for the support of those grieving the loss of a loved one to suicide. Each year, Catholic Charities of Chicago holds a Blossoms of Hope Brunch to benefit LOSS.
On April 24, 2016, the 25th annual Blossoms of Hope Brunch will be held at Drury Lane in Oakbrook, Illinois. It will include a brunch from Drury Lane, and opportunities for guests to win prizes through a Pick-A-Prize, Raffle, and Wine Grab. Dr. David Clark will be presented with the 2016 Charles T. Rubey Award during the brunch for his extensive academic work and research in the field of suicide studies.
