Kids Above All's Annual Celebration Dinner

Kids Above All’s 2023 Annual Celebration Dinner will be on Thursday, November 9 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago. Stay tuned for more details.

Kids Above All’s Annual Celebration Dinner is our signature fundraiser held each fall. This fun, impactful event celebrates the accomplishments and growth of young people in our care, recognizes distinguished business or civic leaders who have helped us place the safety, well-being and education of kids above all else, and raises funds to directly support our kids.
