Funds raised will change a child’s life by offering them a chance to learn in a safe, educational setting far away from their ordinary life of violence and poverty on Chicago’s toughest streets. 


We are proud to be an all volunteer board, ensuring all gala proceeds directly benefit Northwestern Settlement's House In The Wood camp programs.
