The Associate Board of Housing Forward is excited to present Charity Royale – an evening of risk-taking for a good cause. This fundraising event will be held at South Branch Tavern & Grill, one of the best restaurants in The Loop with full views of the Chicago River and nestled among the city's skyline. Attendees at this casino-themed event will try their luck at blackjack or poker, pick a big number on the roulette wheel or try their chances rolling the dice at the craps table. Professional, entertaining dealers will help guests get into the spirit of the games whether a novice or experienced player. At Charity Royale, you and your guests can experience all the fun and excitement of a night in Monte Carlo without the risk of losing since everyone wins when helping others. Past events hosted by the Housing Forward Associate Board have been great successes with an average of 150 supporters participating. We anticipate this unique will attract an even bigger crowd.

At Housing Forward, we love the community support that makes our fundraisers successful, furthering our vision of ending homelessness. Through event sponsorships the highest possible percentage of donations and ticket sales go directly to helping hundreds of people successfully transition back to stable housing. Your support will ensure this is a profitable event, maximizing the benefit to families and individuals experiencing a housing crisis. In return, we give your brand and your generosity high visibility in front of two groups – young professionals and Housing Forward’s 5,000-person strong support base. Thank you for considering this opportunity. We “bet” you won’t regret it.
