Blessings in a Backpack's Chicago Associates Board
Back to School Happy Hour

Blessings in a Backpack’s Chicago Associates Board invites you to our fourth annual Back to School Happy Hour at Benchmark! Join us for a fun- filled evening to raise funds to provide hunger-free weekends to Chicagoland elementary students who might otherwise go hungry. Bring your friends, family and/or whole office after work to unwind and support a great cause! 

Blessings in a Backpack provides critical weekend nutrition for nearly 87,000 students at over 1,090 program sites nationwide. It only takes $130 to feed a child for one 38-week school year, so with your help, we can continue to expand Blessings in a Backpack's impact throughout Chicago. 

Can't make it? You can still make a tax-deductible contribution here.

Advance tickets are $40 pp and include light appetizers and one "Back-to-school Moscow Mule".There will also be a cash bar available for additional drink purchases. Tickets will be sold at the door the night of the event for $45 pp.
