11th Annual CROSO Benefit

October 4, 2018

CROSO supporters from near and far came to Chicago to celebrate our 11th anniversary! With over 200 passionate people filling the room who believe in the power of education to transform and improve communities, it was an amazing evening. The night started in Germania Place’s Royal Ballroom where attendees enjoyed appetizers and drinks while bidding on silent auction and raffle items. When we moved to the Grand Ballroom, guests were greeted with an exquisite meal, a fantastic video about CROSO’s graduate, Edweo Sam, and hearing stories from CROSO board members. We wrapped up the evening with a huge outpouring of support in our paddle raise! Thank you to everyone who believes in CROSO's mission! If you missed the event, but still would like to donate, visit

CROSO co-hosted a pub trivia event with Geeks Who Drink Pub Quizzes at the Peckish Pig in Evanston. As part of their Quiz for a Cause, Geeks Who Drink donated the proceeds from the pub trivia night to CROSO. We had a great night of random knowledge, good company, and lots of laughter!
