Every year the Holiday Hangover event raises money for a great cause. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their lives with hope, strength and joy. Since 1985, the Foundation has granted more than 9,000 wishes in Illinois.
The low contribution fee of $10 may be paid in CASH at the door or online to save time at check-in. In appreciation of that contribution, you will receive a complimentary drink ticket for a sponsored beverage and a generous discount off of the delicious food menu at Rockit.
The inaugural edition of the Holiday Hangover took place on January 26, 2010 at Rockit Bar & Grill in River North. Based on the creation and utilization of a strong team of event hosts with even stronger social networks, our event was exposed to more than 2,000 people and 140 attendees with an average age of 29 years-old and 59% female. Based on our interest in supporting a cause related to youth or homeless, one of our hosts suggested Make-A-Wish of Illinois whom we were able to secure as a partner and raise more than $1,000 for their organization.
Thank you so very much for everything! It was a wonderful event and such a great opportunity to get the MAW name out to young professionals. You guys have been wonderful to work with and I hope we can do something together again in the future! – Katie McCallum, Make-A-Wish Development Manager
