PATRICK LIVES ON hosts fun and engaging mission-driven events that provide financial assistance to junior and high school students for after-school programs or camps. In addition, The Patrick Boswell Courage Award has been established for Chicago Metro 8th graders to encourage and reward students who resist violence.

Each year we host two fundraising events, a Film Showcase in the Spring and a Variety Show in the fall showcasing the many talents of Chicago's Film Community.
