Update: In an effort to protect the safety and well-being of the community at large during COVID-19, Chicago Foundation for Women has cancelled all upcoming events.
Join us at Lagunitas Brewing Company for an evening of food, drinks, and prizes hosted by the Young Women’s Giving Council. Current grantee, Chez Smith of Gyrls in the Hood Foundation will join the festivities, and talk to us about her work to improve reproductive health care outcomes of girls and young women on the South Side.
This event supports a mission which aims to empower girls and young women in the Chicago area through grantmaking to local organizations. Ticket includes entry and food - beer for purchase at $6 each. 90% of the beer proceeds and all other funds raised at the event will support the Giving Council’s grantmaking efforts focused around the belief that all women and girls should have adequate access to healthcare, are free from violence, and are economically secure. Awards granted in June. Event is 21+ with a valid ID.
