2017 ROARING TWENTIES NIGHT

On March 7, 2017, the Greater Chicago Chapter hosted its second annual Roaring Twenties Charity Night, benefitting Chicago Youth Centers.  Chicago Youth Centers—the City's largest private urban youth organization—exists to empower children to recognize and experience their possibility and promise.  CYC's College and Career Readiness Program guides students and parents throughout the entire college process—from test preparation and career modeling starting as early as age 12, to comparing financial aid packages and sending students to college with the right supplies, expectations, and support systems in place.  Through seven centers on the south and west sides of Chicago, and numerous partner sites throughout the city, CYC helps bridge the employable skills gap and empowers families to break the persistent cycles of poverty and violence.

Held at Untitled Supper Club, a unique speakeasy-inspired venue, guests enjoyed Rat Pack-style jazz performed by the Sam Fazio Quartet, scrumptious food, casino-style gaming, camaraderie and networking and, of course, a dose of healthy competition at the raffle table.  The evening was made even more festive by the many members, business partners and guests who arrived in period attire! 

The success of this very special evening was made possible by the generous support of the Chapter's business partners, members and guests in attendance, energetic volunteers and the tireless efforts of the Chapter's Community Relations Committee.  Members of this Committee include: Ivie Cohn (Chair), Bev Bollman, Kelly Dillon, Maureen Feltman, Karen Hammersmith, Betsy Amaya Kopczynski, Kerry Mansfield and Deb O’Donnell.

Our thanks to everyone who helped make this a truly unforgettable evening.  We look forward to seeing again you next year!
