Evanston Art Center chosen as location for annual fundraiser

October 9, 2018 by  

Adopting is one way of building a loving family, and those who have made the decision to place their child for adoption will be honored during a function that is on the agenda for Evanston this fall.

The evenings activities will have a New Orleans’s theme, and there will be lots of food, music and fun. Proceeds from the evening will be used to support the programming offered by the On Your Feet Foundation, which supports birth parents in their choices, both before and after the adoption process.

The plan for the gathering includes food that will be prepared with a New Orleans flair. Cagen Music’s New Orleans Dixie Band will provide the entertainment, and both live and silent auctions have been planned. Tickets are on sale for $125 if they are purchased before October 1, and after that date, the price will increase to $150.

The organizers of the fundraiser noted since not everyone who would like to show their support may able to attend in person, donations are currently being accepted. Banner printing and other promotional services for an occasion like this can be provided by a printer in the local area.

This year’s ‘Gather: A night to honor, empower, and celebrate birth parents’ will be taking place in the Evanston Art Center on November 2. Its online listing can be consulted for further details.
