CAF collecting donations to assist family of docent Steven O'Rourke

Anyone who's ever taken a Chicago Architecture Foundation tour knows that the volunteer docents who lead them - profoundly knowledgeable enthusiasts for our rich legacy - are among the city's most treasured assets.

You've already probably read the tragic story about how one of these great docents, Steven O'Rourke, an architect who gave tours to third and fourth grade students, recently lost his life to a hit-and-run driver, leaving behind wife Rachel, and three children, ages 1, 4 and 9.

The Chicago Architecture Foundation is currently collecting donations to assist Steven O'Rourke's family through this difficult time. Checks should be made out to CAF, which will combine the funds into a single contribution to the Rachel McKee Family Assistance Fund, which the CAF is hoping to make by August 15th. "Please be sure to include your full mailing and e-mail addresses along with your contribution so your assistance to Steve's family can be properly recognized."

The mailing address is:
Chicago Architecture Foundation
224 South Michigan Avenue
Chicago, Illinois 60604
