The Future Leaders Gala is the UCAN Auxiliary Board’s annual event to honor the accomplishments of young professionals in Chicago. The event is held in partnership with UCAN’s youth leadership programming which works to provide guidance, education and support for youth who have suffered trauma. Each year, 3 exceptional nominees, 2 from the business community and 1 youth, receive awards to champion their hard work and leadership.

The Future Leaders Gala will be held on October 3, 2019 at per.so.na in Chicago.  The evening will include a cocktail reception, hors d’oeuvres, raffles, silent auction items and an inspiring awards ceremony. We anticipate over 100 guests including corporate and foundation partners, community leaders, and UCAN youth. Proceeds will benefit UCAN’s vision that youth who have suffered trauma can become our future leaders. The fundraising revenue goal this year is $20,000, all of which will directly support UCAN’s programs and services.
