Our school's eleventh annual RISE UP fundraiser, hosted by our Auxiliary Board, will be held on Thursday, October 7th from 6 to 9PM at Midwest Coast Brewing at 2137 W. Walnut, Chicago.

Midwest Coast beers

At this year's event, you can sample Midwest Coast's variety of refreshing craft beers while enjoying tasty Korean-Mexican fusion food from taKOREA. Dress is casual.

While we are eager to celebrate with you in person, we know things aren't totally normal yet, so we will be sure to follow all local COVID-19 safety measures. RISE UP will take place on the outdoor patio, weather permitting, or inside the spacious taproom. 

Midwest Coast Outside

More than just a great party, the proceeds from RISE UP provide the resources our students need to succeed in college and beyond. The Class of 2021 was CTK's 10th consecutive graduating class with 100% college acceptance! Your support allows CTK to maintain a robust college counseling program, which includes alumni persistence staffing and resources. Our students need your support now more than ever.

Alumnae Mya Peters, CTK '14 will be speaking briefly at the event about her experience as a Fulbright scholar teaching in Thailand and on her current position working in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Radancy, and of course the impact of her time at CTK.
