RISE UP, hosted by our Auxiliary Board, brings together over 350 professionals, donors and friends who believe that education and work experience are the keys to opportunity. This year, RISE UP will be held on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at Salvage One in West End to celebrate the start of our 2nd decade helping students on Chicago's West Side! This year’s theme, “Top Shelf Tailgate,” celebrates our track record of success with 100% of CTK graduates earning college admission. Join us for top shelf cocktails, gourmet appetizers, fun games, and amazing raffle items.
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 $2,700 annual tuition affordable, allowing them to choose a safe, Jesuit, college prep education.
New Ticket Price: $75
One of our first college graduates, Kyara '12, spoke at the event about how Christ the King prepared her to be successful in college and continues to connect her to opportunities as an alum. She is the first college graduate in her family.
"CTK prepared me to be a loving, hard-working, reliable, and independent individual who strives for greatness in all that I do....I have been blessed to be part of a school whose goal is to change the West Side community by starting with the youth. I encourage you to join me and get involved."
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!
