Children’s Place Association is hosting its annual "Once Upon a Time" Gala again and we are requesting the support of volunteers to help us put on our biggest fundraiser of the year! Last year’s gala was extremely successful and we know we couldn’t have achieved this without our volunteers.

This year’s event will highlight and celebrate more than 25 years of working with Chicago’s most vulnerable children. You won’t want to miss having a hand in this successful event. We hope that you will join us this year for Once Upon a Time.... at the Black and White Ball on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at Revel Fulton Market (1215 W. Fulton Market, Chicago, IL 60607).
