Not Attending?

You can still participate in the auction!

Welcome to our first live Fundraiser post pandemic.   We have missed you, our friends and supporters.  As a result, we want to have a night of appreciation so bring someone you appreciate and treat them to a special night in a special place with us.   We will do all the prep for you, you just have to show up.



Watch our Meet Our Students video below to take a peak into our 10-Week Leadership Boot Camp for Success for our young women of color.    In order for her to participate she must commit to spending 10 Saturday mornings for 4 hours with us; that is our first lesson on discipline.  Then we focus on teaching her soft skills, self awareness, goals setting ultimately growing her confidence.  We also assign her a mentor, a coach, and a project manager who all work together to push her to become a Super Achiever.  


Ready. to bid on our Silent Auction, take a look at what we have to offer.  You can make your bid as early as, August 17.  Some of our top Chicago Artist have donated their Art to help us fundraise.  We also are providing travel packages via Winspire who offers non-profits anything above the non-profit rate to keep for our fundraiser.  


Join us August 24 starting at 6:00pm at the beautiful Atrium at the Danada House
