This intimate gathering brings together CFW’s closest supporters in Oak Park for an evening of great food, wine and friends, while investing in health, safety and justice for Chicago-area women and girls.
BUILD works to end violence in Chicago by building support networks for young people to transform their lives and choose paths that reject violence.
In the midst of efforts to stem violence, women and girls are often forgotten. BUILD addresses the gap in support and violence prevention programs specifically for young women and girls, with trauma-informed support for healing, mentoring and growth.
Don't miss the VIP Reception!
The VIP Reception will feature an intimate conversation with Rebecca Parrish, cinematographer of "America to Me," a film that spends one year at Oak Park River Forest High School and examines racial, economic and class issues in contemporary American education.
Please join CFW and friends for an intimate gathering as we continue to pursue our mission to invest in women and girls as catalysts, building strong communities for all. Your gift will enable Chicago Foundation for Women to continue to make smarter connections between need, money and solutions.
