Why support the Outreach Program through the Benefit:

The Benefit is the most significant fundraiser for Kenilworth Union’s Church Outreach program raising $175,000 in recent years. Now it is even more important given rummage has been cancelled for 2020. And in this time of Covid-19, our agencies need funding now more than ever as they deliver critically needed services to the most vulnerable populations in the Chicagoland area.

Our three featured agencies this year are Cara Chicago, The Night Ministry, and Rebuilding Together.

What to expect and how to participate:

It is easy! To join the online Benefit, create your personal account and register your credit card. If you have an existing Greater Giving Account, you can use that account to participate.

Once you are registered, immediately buy raffle tickets and make general Outreach donations. Begin bidding on auction items once the auction opens at noon on Friday, April 24.

The Raffle:

Raffle tickets can be purchased for $25 each or 5 for $100. This year’s raffle is a package of gift cards from local businesses valued at $600.

The Auction:

Bid on some fabulous auction items! Bidding opens at Noon on Friday, April 24—April 27 at 6 p.m.
