Our fourth annual Augustinian Gala - held on April 22, 2016 at the Drake Hotel in Chicago - was a great success! We are still crunching the numbers, but it looks like we set a record in how much we raised: proceeds of about $140,000! Wow!
Thank you to our gala committee, our sponsors, guests, and advertisers. Please join us in thanking all those took major sponsorships, those who sponsored tables, and those who placed ads in our program book. You made it happen!
