Twenty-five years ago, SOS Children’s Villages Illinois began its mission to serve Illinois’ most vulnerable children. What started out as an organization serving 45 children, has evolved today into one of Illinois’ premier child welfare agencies that annually serves over 700 children and families in four communities throughout the Chicagoland area.
SOS Children’s Villages Illinois celebrated its 25th Anniversary at a special event on June 25 at Venue SIX10 on Michigan Avenue.
The evening’s highlights included a reception with fare from well-known Chicagoland chefs, the presentation of SOS Children’s Villages Illinois Awards of Excellence, and a keynote address from First Lady Diana Mendley Rauner.
Thank you to our Host Committee, Corporate Partners, and all of our guests for making this celebration memorable and inspiring. View pictures from the event here.
