Thank You for Coming to Carnaval!

Our thanks to the more than 500 people who joined us at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel on Friday, February 28, for a wonderful evening of dining and dancing to benefit the six programs of Chicago Lights.

Through your generosity, Carnaval raised more than $450,000--an event record!--to benefit the six programs of Chicago Lights. Thank you, thank you for your help changing lives.

"The biggest draw for us to Chicago Lights, both as volunteers and benefactors, has been the sense of being apart of a strong community that inspires others and leads by example. Chicago Lights has allowed both of us to share the gifts we have been so blessed with while gaining new perspective on the challenges our community faces."

--Craig and Alison Naish
