Once Upon A Time Gala  2021!


Save the date for the Once Upon a Time  – With Love From Chicago annual gala. This year we celebrate 30 Years of Service. The 2021 gala will remain virtual due to current COVID restrictions. As the pandemic continues so does the need for the children and families we serve, already overwhelmed by poverty, housing insecurity and neighborhood violence, together we will continue to provide the support they need during this crisis.

We are so grateful for your support, now more than ever.
