For immediate release:
Centro de Información Annual Gala - Dream A Bigger Dream
Saturday, September 29, 2018
Centro de Información will host its annual benefit gala and auction on Saturday, September 29, from 6PM to 9PM at Villa Olivia in Bartlett. Tickets, sponsorship information, and raffle tickets are now available at centro18.gesture.com.
This year’s theme is Dream A Bigger Dream, and will be a celebration of community, diversity, and the strength of those brave enough to dream big. It will be an evening of delicious food, outstanding entertainment, and exciting live and silent auctions. With help from hundreds of guests, sponsors, and donors, we hope to meet our goal of raising $140,000.
In 2017, Centro’s dedicated staff served over 13,000 clients from 24 communities—most of whom made less than $15,000 annually. Centro has been identified as a ‘first stop’ on the journey to American citizenship and is pleased to offer a host of other services including: immigration services, translation assistance, an emergency food pantry, job fairs, health screenings, and weekly educational seminars. These are only a few examples of the many ways in which Centro supports immigrants and the Hispanic community. In many ways, these services are needed more now than ever. Event tickets, raffle tickets, sponsorships are all available now at centro18.gesture.com. Tickets start at $95; sponsorship prices vary. Donations in any amount are always welcome. All proceeds will benefit Centro de Información and their work in Elgin, Hanover Park, Carpentersville, and surrounding areas.
