2021 Gala – A Virtual Experience
Save the date for Children’s Place Association’s 2021 Annual Gala – Once Upon a Time…With Love From Chicago. This year’s event will be held online as the global pandemic continues to limit in-person gatherings.
This year’s event is especially significant because it marks the 30th anniversary of Children’s Place Association. The money raised through our Once Upon a Time Gala effort will allow us to continue our mission of hope and transformation supporting Chicago’s most vulnerable children who are even more at risk now due to the devastating and disproportionate impacts this group is experiencing amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Your donations will help fund our Child Thrive Initiative featuring a new community resource center in West Humboldt Park that will provide trauma-focused mental health therapy, primary care services, evidence-based youth mentoring and community-sponsored activities to bolster a response to neighborhood violence and social determinants of health. The project will also address economic development and neighborhood safety by promoting the renovation of vacant and derelict business properties on West Chicago Avenue.
We invite you to save the date and join us in celebrating 30 years of service at this exciting event where you can be a champion for Chicago’s most vulnerable children!
