RISE UP 2019
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3RD
THE LIBRARY AT 190 SOUTH LASALLE
----------------
Our school's ninth annual RISE UP fundraiser, hosted by our Auxiliary Board, was held on Thursday, October 3rd. This year's event was held at The Library at 190 South LaSalle which aligns with our mission of providing college success programming for our students. The CTK Class of 2019 continued our track record of success with 100% of graduates earning college admission for the 8th consecutive year.  
 
Our guests enjoyed a fun night featuring outstanding food, drinks, entertainment and more. The gourmet food selections were catered by Blue Plate, and a variety of beer, wine, and drinks were courtesy of Constellation Brands and Breakthru Beverage Group. One of Chicago's favorite DJs, Brent Rolland from Fig Media was there all night to add energy to our celebration. A highlight of the evening were special performances by CTK 2019 graduate and Rising Star award winner, Devon Fields and his rap group, Rated by Greatness and an entertaining spoken word piece from Christian '20 (see link to right). There was also a craft whiskey tasting, wine pull and great raffle prizes. THANK YOU to all who attended and supported our students!

New this year, was an after party at Lizzie McNeill's with half of sales going back to CTK. 

 

More than just a great party, the proceeds from RISE UP provide the resources our students need to succeed in college and beyond. These funds support Christ the King students and families to keep our annual tuition affordable, allowing them to choose a safe, Jesuit, college prep education. Your attendance also allows us to maintain a robust college counseling program, which includes alumni persistence staffing and resources. 
  
As a young school with a small alumni network, our students need your help to succeed. By attending or sponsoring this event, you are making an even greater difference in the lives of our students. Thank You!
