Cocktail Attire

Join us as Chicago’s leaders come together for an evening of teen showcases, fabulous food and drinks, and networking to celebrate our youth. All teens deserve to dream big, discover their potential, and be inspired to find pathways for their futures. Help us to create these opportunities by investing in After School Matters today for a brighter Chicago tomorrow. 

After School Matters invests in Chicago teens because they are the future of our city. For more than 30 years, After School Matters has been investing in Chicago communities by offering paid after-school and summer programs in the arts, communications and leadership, sports, and STEM to Chicago teens. Each year, we provide 25,000 opportunities for Chicago teens to learn new skills, find mentors, earn money, and prepare for the future.

If possible, kindly consider a check or wire transfer payment for gifts over $5,000. Please see the Sponsorship Form for more details.
