ChicagoCAC hosts fundraising, awareness, and client-focused events throughout the year.

Our events spread the word about the center, inform people about the important role we play in keeping children safe and help fund the vital programs we provide. Here's a guide to our regularly scheduled events each year!

Spring Events

Summer Events
