Big Shoulders Fund Ball

Big Shoulders Fund schools are transforming lives of inner-city children and the Auxiliary Board has been a megaphone for our mission for the last 10 years. They not only spread the word about Big Shoulders, but get involved directly with our schools.

Celebrate the work of the Auxiliary Board by joining us at the 11th Annual Big Shoulders Fund Ball.

Proceeds from the night support the Auxiliary Board Scholarship which provides financial aid to some of the most deserving students in the city of Chicago. With the help of the Auxiliary Board, these students are given the tools to study for a brighter future.
