Celebration raises funds to help area families

March 17, 2017 by  

A Celebration of Sharing is taking place next month in Evanston, and is both a fundraiser for, and the annual meeting of, Northwestern Settlement.

Guests will be treated to drinks and heavy hors d’oeuvres during the evening. They will also have the opportunity to listen to speeches from guests such as Phillip Cusic and Alyssa Garcia, who will likely discuss Northwestern Settlement and what it has to offer to the community. The keynote speech for the evening will be delivered by Steve Solomon, who will be talking about using philanthropy for impact.

In addition, Solomon will be awarded the Emma and Henry Wade Rogers Legacy Award for Corporate Partnership. Also, Cossette Chicago will receive the Emma and Henry Wade Rogers Legacy Award for Innovation and Impact.

Northwestern Settlement is an organization that helps children and families in need. Some of its programs include early childhood education, a food pantry, youth programs, and a summer camp for children.

For events like this, Evanston stationery printing firms are asked to provide printed invitations that can be mailed out to past supporters.

A Celebration of Sharing will be held at the Segal Visitors Center at Northwestern University on April 19 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. Tickets are $125 each. For the most current information about this event, or to find out more about Northwestern Settlement, call 773-278-7471.
