CROSO's 11th Annual Benefit will be held on Thursday, October 4, 2018 from 6:00pm - 10:00pm at Germania Place, a beautiful 125-year-old historic landmark building in Chicago. The event will begin with a cocktail hour and time for all 250+ attendees to bid on silent auction items and purchase raffle tickets. 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! 

CROSO is inviting businesses to get involved in this event as sponsors, underwriters, and in-kind donors. This is a great opportunity to show local communities that you recognize your role in the global community and understand the life-changing impact that education can have on individuals and their surroundings. Your company's tax-deductible contribution will go toward ensuring a brighter future for Ugandan street children through higher education.
