On Sunday, Oct. 2, FamilyForward will host its annual premier fundraising event, Giving Hope. After 2+ years of virtual activities, this year's event features a homecoming theme. Attendees will gather, 12:30-3:30 p.m., at Chevy Chase Country Club, 1000 N. Milwaukee Ave., Wheeling, for a celebration of the many ways FamilyForward positively impacts the lives of local low-income, working families across the northwest suburbs of Chicago.

Registration for Giving Hope: Home Coming is $75 per person and includes a variety of fun and inspirational activities, including a silent auction and raffle; cash bar and gourmet lunch buffet with carving station; live streaming of the Bears game; engaging entertainment by District 214 students; and a live appeal to raise funds for families. Participants are also invited to wear their high school or college colors to celebrate the homecoming theme.

 

One program highlight will be the opportunity to hear from a family whose lives were changed by the intensive, targeted two-year program at FamilyForward. This year's goal is to raise at least $50,000 to help client families as they continue to face struggles only aggravated by the pandemic, inflation, and ever-rising costs for rental housing.

Visit family-forward.org/giving-hope-2022 to learn more and register.

Sponsorships and donated silent-auction and raffle items are also welcome, through Sept. 12. For information, call Erica Chianelli, at (847) 342-0846.
