Save the Date! This year's annual benefit will be held:

  • May 2, 2019

We invite the public to our annual fundraising benefit to raise critical funds to provide life-changing services to children and families in Chicago's most challenged and underserved neighborhoods. The popular evening includes a cocktail reception with hors d'oeuvres, dinner, and a keynote address with Steve Pemberton, author of A Chance in the World. We are proud to honor our former Board of Directors member, Neal Seltzer with the prestigious Jean S. Meltzer Award for An Outstanding Lifetime of Service to SGA.
