Fundraisers

The Women's Centers of Greater Chicagoland hosts several events and fundraisers throughout the year to help fund our mission. We welcome all donors and supporters to participate in these events.  Please contact us for further information regarding each event.

Life Banquet – February, Valentine's Day Weekend

Each year, we hold our annual Life Banquet at a prominent local venue to bring together donors, supporters, staff, and volunteers to celebrate its work and life-saving mission, while raising necessary funds to support our mission. Lunch is served followed by a Silent Auction. Each year, a different pro-life guest speaker is also featured. In February 2016, we were blessed to have Abby Johnson discuss her conversion from former Planned Parenthood director to pro-life advocate.

Mother's Day Flower Sale – May, Mother's Day Weekend

On Mother's Day, The Women's Centers of Greater Chicagoland sells flowers in the vestibules of local Chicago and suburban parishes before and after Mass. Please contact your parish, church, or The Women's Centers of Greater Chicagoland to inquire about participation.

Walk-Wiffle-Bike – Fall

Each fall, we sponsor a 5K Walk/Bike fundraiser at two Chicagoland locations on the north and south sides. Staff, volunteers, donors, and supporters join together to raise funds by walking, biking and enjoying lunch afterwards. This year, we will be adding a wiffle ball tournament to the event as well.

Fall Gala – November

Our Fall Gala is held each year at a local parish or venue in the Chicago or suburban area. The evening includes dinner, speakers, and client testimonials, followed by a Silent Auction. All proceeds go to help sponsor our mission.

Christmas Wreath Sale – November/December

During December, Christmas wreaths and centerpieces are provided to local parishes and churches for sale after Masses. Please contact your parish or The Women's Centers of Greater Chicagoland to inquire about participation.

Baby Bottle Project – Year-round

Throughout the year, generous local parishes help sponsor our Baby Bottle Project, founded on the idea that "Spare Change Saves Babies." Each parish is provided baby bottles for parishioners and students to collect change that will be used to help fund the mission and services provided by The Women's Centers of Greater Chicagoland. Please contact your parish, church, or The Women's Centers of Greater Chicagoland to inquire about participation.
