The Bright Futures Gala is Youth Guidance’s premier annual event to raise the necessary funds for the organization to support programs such as Becoming A Man (BAM) and Working on Womanhood (WOW), that reach more than 8,500 youth directly each school year.
We are thrilled to honor Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Peoples Gas and Exelon for their ongoing and steadfast support of Youth Guidance’s mission.
The Gala will be held on Thursday, May 18th at the Palmer House Hilton and will feature a silent and live auction, engaging program, and dinner service.
