Sue Duncan Children’s Center’s Annual Fall Fête Fundraiser takes place at Chicago’s prestigious University Club and is characterized as an enchanting evening of cocktails, live music and buffet-style dining with established and emerging philanthropists contributing to the worthy cause of educating inner-city children. The attire is business/semi-formal and festivities include beer/wine tastings and an exciting and highly competitive auction.

The focus of the evening is to celebrate the Center’s outstanding track-record for transforming inner-city children academically and socially while raising funds to extend its reach to other communities in need on Chicago’s south side.

The Sue Duncan Children’s Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Center does not receive state or federal funding and is completely dependent on the generosity of donors. All Fall Fête proceeds support the children of the Sue Duncan Children’s Center.
