Spring Benefit 2019 — A Celebration of Learning


On May 16, 2019, our generous and caring community of Polaris family and friends gathered at Loft Lucia in the West Loop for our annual benefit A Celebration of Learning. Guests dined on hors d’oeuvres and cocktails presented by Blue Plate Chicago, enjoyed a student art exhibition, played the raffle, mingled and lounged on a beautiful outdoor deck to the musical stylings of DJ King. A panel of students presented a moving and inspiring presentation about the impact of a Polaris education and shared about their experiences on fieldwork to Birmingham, Alabama. Everyone enjoyed an inspiring evening of giving back and making a difference.

Thank you to our incredibly generous sponsors and supporters for believing in Polaris and helping us raise nearly $80,000 to support Learning Expeditions and education initiatives for our K-8th grade students. You are our Polaris family, and we are grateful for your giving. Your investment in Polaris creates a positive future for our students and creates a better world for all of us in our Chicago community.

Thank you for celebrating with us. Thank you for being Crew!

Thank You to Our Generous Sponsors!
