The first annual “Come Sail Away” fundraiser was a huge hit!  Over 100 guests enjoyed a champagne brunch and 2 hour cruise on The Spirit of Chicago boat on beautiful Lake Michigan. There was a grand raffle, wine raffle, and silent auction.

The benefit was so successful that we are already planning a repeat on the "Spirit of Chicago" for September 2017.
