Genna Khan and Lori Khan

Join mother and daughter event co-chair dream team, Genna Kahn and Lori Kahn, for ORT Chicago’s 19th Lunch With a View on Sunday April 28th at Bryn Mawr Country Club.

Come for the laughs, the lunch, the author and the discussion. Bring your girlfriends, daughters, moms, and nieces!

Our 2019 fundraising project is breaking the gender gap in support of Girls and Women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). ORT works hard to encourage girls to study, grow and thrive in STEM education.

At ORT Chicago, from generation to generation, we’ve been elevating each other for many decades. Now, it’s as important as it has ever been.

See you on April 28th!
