Inaugural event

Our Inaugural event took place on Thursday, May 14th and it was a huge success! Nearly $10,000 was raised for a local charity in increments of $100 from business and community leaders, and we couldn't have done it without our generous sponsors and partners. The event itself took place at the Literacenter (641 W. Lake Street) in Downtown Chicago.

The Details

Three great local charities were drawn randomly from dozens nominated by attendees for a chance to speak on behalf of their organization. We are pleased to announce that the winner was the WINGS Program from Chicago! Read below for information about each of the three charities:
