Just a two days from now, more hundreds of people in Chicago will come together at Millenium park to attend one of the best run events of the year. It will be a chance where many of the attendees can support a game changing organization. Where staff and donors can celebrate a very successful year of hard work. And where the organization is sure to have its best fundraising day of the year. On Thursday, Cristo Rey Jesuit High School will have its 2012 annul fundraiser event VIVA:
Similar to last year’s VIVA fundraiser this one is taking place in downtown Chicago and should be a pretty good time. As a board fellow with the organization I’ll be attending the event along with all the other Cristo Rey Board members to celebrate the end of a good year.
The event will be filled with food, fun and networking. There will be a great raffle, music and announcements. There will also be high profile speakers and news coverage, just like there were last year. In fact, to learn more about the event this year CLICK HERE. Personally, I am a big fan of what Cristo Rey is doing and look forward to staying involved and attending future fundraisers.
At Kellogg, business students seem to be increasingly seeking jobs in the education industry and specifically at strong schools and school systems. One place to consider is Cristo Rey, who many consider to be a pioneer in their field.
