Stories that Connect: Attendee Details

Stories that Connect is Kaleidoscope’s annual fundraising event to support our programs for children, youth and families healing from abuse and neglect in Chicago.

We’re thrilled to be back in person for this year’s event. The evening will include an open bar and heavy appetizers, silent auction, paddle raise and a brief program featuring our young people, staff and families. We’ll also honor the memories of two early leaders who passed in the last year: Tom Finnegan and Mel Breed.

Together, we’ll share real life stories that showcase how our programs help kids and families build resourcefulness, resiliency, and supportive relationships.
