We are just one week out from the fourth Annual Inspiracion Gala! It is going to be a great night with dinner, open bar, a dance lesson, silent auction, and performances from all of our teams. This year we will have more youth performers in the gala than ever before–with 17 dancers from our programs at Senn High School and Arrupe College.
It is important to us that all of our youth performers have supporters there on the big night. We've gotten a lot of help from you so far, but we are still short by 12 tickets. So we are issuing a challenge to all of you who support youth in the arts. We have a goal of twelve $50 student family ticket donations today. Just click this link and write "student family ticket" in the instructions box. If you would like to help but are not comfortable with the $50 donation level, please give at a level that works for you. Every bit of your generosity helps!
We are extremely happy to announce that the emcee for the Fourth Annual Inspiración Gala will be Ray McElroy. Ray is a former Chicago Bear who has done great work through his organization, A Ray of Hope on Earth, which organizes youth football camps, life-plan coaching for professional athletes, and a wide array of community programs.
We first met Ray in 2015 when he competed with IDC principal dancer Cate Wood in the 2015 Ray of Stars Celebrity Dancing benefit. In addition to the fact that he turned out to be quite the dancer, it was apparent that Ray is a charismatic speaker with a real passion to help the community. We can't wait to see the great energy he will bring to the event!
It's going to be a great night of dinner, dancing, and performances. Click here to get your tickets now!
