Member Connections: Working Together to Do Good for the Community

A plethora of our members recently came together to raise money for a great cause. The Sky Cares Foundation held it's first fundraising gala on June 21st at The Montgomery Club. Chicago Sky Cares Foundation partnered with Wantz Events to insure a high quality silent auction and event experience.

RNBA Member Chicago Sky Cares Foundation is the 501(c)3 non-profit organization of Chicago’s WNBA team, Chicago Sky. They have been serving Chicago communities since 2011, impacting over 50,000 lives every year in various ways: helping to advance youth educational opportunities for those in underserved communities, providing memorable life changing experiences with our athletes, and helping to advance health and wellness initiatives to those in need.  

Wantz Events, also an RNBA Member, plans and manages corporate, social & non-profit events and welcomed the opportunity to work with the wonderful Sky Cares team!

The event was a success with a multitude of sponsors and approximately 150 guests. Wantz Events & Sky Cares silent auction efforts brought in over $25,000 worth of items, with over 60 exciting experiences, sports memorabilia, restaurants and more, to choose from! 

Several of the silent auction items were donated by our very own generous members including Bottled Blonde, Sullivan's & Ruth's Chris Steakhouse not to mention the RNBA.  

 

Congrats to everyone who helped make this event so successful!
