Midtown Educational Foundation’s 4th annual Rooftop Soiree benefiting MEF's summer programs for at-risk youth is approaching! It will take place on May 20th from 7pm-11pm at Ignite Glass Studios, and will include a raffle with several themed prize baskets full of fantastic Chicago prizes. From Blackhawks tickets to a new Casper mattress, a 60-minute massage to a 3 month membership at Equinox, Auxiliary Board members and volunteers are working hard to gather the best prizes, and many more are rolling in!
Raffle prizes will be divided up into multiple categories, such as Room & Board, Beauty & Fitness, Stay ‘Cation, Chicago Sports, Wedding, and a Brewery/Distillery theme. In addition, one lucky person will be winner of the $5,000 Grand Prize!
Tickets are 1 for $25 and 5 for $100. Here's how it works: If you buy raffle tickets in advance, they are automatically entered to win the $5,000 grand prize! If you buy tickets at the event, you'll choose to enter your tickets to win one of the prize baskets or the grand prize.
Come enjoy the live music, delicious food, an open bar and a live glass blowing demonstration. You might be a lucky prize winner, but Chicago kids are guaranteed to win when you support MEF's safe, enriching summer program for over 800 at-risk youth in the city!
We hope to see you there! Learn more about the Rooftop Soiree.
