On behalf of the Board of Directors of CROSO and the Annual Benefit Planning Committee, we would like to invite you to join us for the 11th Annual CROSO Benefit to be held on the evening of Thursday, October 4, 2018.This year, we will be moving the event downtown, to Germania Place, a beautiful 125-year-old historic landmark building in the heart of Old Town and Lincoln Park in Chicago.


Our theme for this year's event is "Giving Bright Minds a Brighter Future." As always, the proceeds of this event will support CROSO’s mission of transforming communities in Uganda through scholarships for former street children. We currently support 24 CROSO Scholars in Uganda to attend colleges, universities, and technical schools, and have already seen 22 more CROSO Scholars graduate! We hope you'll join us to celebrate their accomplishments.


The event will begin with a reception hour (beer and wine included) and time for all 250+ attendees to bid on silent auction items and purchase raffle tickets. We'll be sharing more about some of the incredible silent auction items that you'll have a chance to bid on as the event gets closer, so keep an eye on our social media pages to stay up to date! Attendees will then transition to the ballroom for our seated dinner, program, and paddle raise. 

Last year, this event raised over $75,000 and with your help, we can raise even more this year! 

Tickets can now be purchased online at www.CROSO.org/events.
