On Sat, Nov 14th our Junior Board held its first annual fundraiser at the Godfrey Hotel’s IO Urban Roofscape. Over one hundred guests enjoyed DJ Toddizza playing a mix of hip-hop and 80s classics, delicious appetizers provided by The Godfrey Hotel, and a silent auction with a range of items, including an all-expenses paid trip to New Orleans, premium Bulls tickets, and a ten-course-meal provided by Goose & Fox. The event raised thousands of dollars for our year-round Education Program, which welcomes 8,000 Chicago Public School students to free film screenings throughout the year.
