Thanks to all your great work, we raised over $11,000 at our YLS Evening with Rock Stars event, bringing critical resources to the communities that need them most! THANK YOU to all who attended and contributed! If you didn’t get a chance on Friday and you would like to pledge, please text ROCKSTAR to 41444 to make a $10 donation.
During the night we recognized three of our Rock Star Finalists: Rachel Hoge, Naja Morris and Sean Tenner for their service over the past year, and through a live vote at the event, Naja Morris was selected as ourRock Star Volunteer of the Year! Congratulations again to Naja!
A special thank you goes out to NBC 5 Chicago Morning News Anchor, Stefan Holt, our headline speaker, for his encouraging and motivational words during our VIP reception. Stefan applauded the group on their community engagement and enthusiasm for philanthropy. As a young professional himself, Stefan has a unique perspective on the struggles that some of us face balancing work, family and philanthropy, and he encouraged us all to continue to make a difference in Chicago. We thank him again for being our guest.
A huge thanks goes out as well to AT&T for opening up their doors for us to celebrate in their amazing Flagship store. Thank you as well to our emcee Dougie Stylz from B96 and to DJ Clash Gordon who energized the night with his lively beats.
We were happy to see most of you head to the photo wall to snap a few pictures and now here is the proof. Check out those photos and more great shots from the event here and tag yourself on Facebook. You all looked great!
