EdgeAlliance  will host its 21st
Annual Gala, The YOU! Ball 
on Saturday,
November 16th, 2013 at 7:00 PM at Venue One in the West
Loop of Chicago. The party will benefit the nonprofit with funds going towards supportive
housing programs that will provide the children, families and adults at the campus
with a greater quality of independence.

Chefs from some of Chicago’s finest restaurants which include the
Signature Room at the 95th, Hearty Restaurant, Crew Bar + Grill
& Swirlz Cupcakes will create food stations featuring their signature
specialties! Event Sponsors include: CS Modern Luxury, Exit Strategy Realty,
Guaranteed Rate, and ROC Realty Group.

“As we enter our 22nd year of service, we invite everyone to join us
for a spectacular evening in urban chic attire while helping to raise money
that will positively impact the quality of life for hundreds of at-risk
families and individuals,” said EdgeAlliance Board Member and YOU! Ball
Event Co-Chair Kevin Rocio.

  
The YOU! Ball is the agency’s major annual fundraiser
which encompasses silent and live auctions featuring getaway vacations,
entertainment and sports memorabilia, elegant dining, wine tastings, golf
outings and more. “These additional funds will help support the critical
programs and services we provide,” said Kevin, “so our guests will be doing a
world of good by having an evening of fun.”

EdgeAlliance’s philosophy of housing is simple: it should be safe,
affordable, well-built and attractive. The developments should offer both
respite and permanent supportive housing options. They should be located in
areas where people are hurting. The housing should welcome diverse population
including children, teens, young adults, people in midlife, and senior
citizens. The property area itself should contain lots of green spaces and
garden space, and it should be a major part of community.

The ticket price for the party is $125.00
or $175.00 for VIP admission.BUY ONLINE NOW
