Eat, Drink and Be Giving!


Please join us on May 19 for our annual Celebration of Learning benefit. This inspirational evening is our biggest fundraiser of the year. All proceeds support Polaris Charter Academy learning expeditions and education initiatives for our K–8th grade students. This year will be an extra special and super fun party as we gather in person to celebrate our 15-Year Anniversary as a school!

We look forward to celebrating with our Polaris family and friends at Loft Lucia in the West Loop. Guests will mix and mingle on the rooftop terrace and enjoy refreshing cocktails (open bar), delicious and plentiful hors d’oeuvres catered by Blue Plate Chicago, a raffle and silent auction, and more. There will be an inspiring student program and opportunity to support Polaris. This will be a special evening of giving back and making a difference. We hope you will be with us to celebrate.
