WorldChicago’s Fall Fundraiser will be held on Thursday, November 9 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Chicago Yacht Club, Monroe Harbor, 400 East Monroe Street in Chicago. The Fall Fundraiser is an event dedicated to championing citizen diplomacy in our community and around the world. At WorldChicago, we are facilitating professional and personal collaboration between international leaders and local specialists to accelerate civic engagement, economic development, social justice, the education of young leaders, and empowerment of the disenfranchised, both here in Chicago and around the world.
Revel in global culture and celebrate international visitors and citizen diplomacy with WorldChicago hosts, members, visitors, and volunteers. Enjoy Cocktails, Hors D’oeuvres, and join our international game night with U.S. Department of State sponsored Professional Fellows. These young professional entrepreneurs, environmental advocates, policy leaders, and community activists have been placed in Chicago for one-month fellowships to learn about their fields and exchange best professional practices. Come meet these fellows for a fun, interactive evening of Citizen Diplomacy!
Tickets are $100 per ticket.
