Big Shoulders Fund Ball

Big Shoulders Fund schools are transforming lives of inner-city children and the Big Shoulders Fund Next Generation Boards have been a megaphone for our mission for over a decade. They not only spread the word about Big Shoulders, but get involved directly with our schools. Celebrate the work of our Next Generation Boards by joining us at the 15th Annual Big Shoulders Fund Ball.

Proceeds support scholarships which provide financial aid to some of the most deserving students across the Chicago region. With the help of the Next Generation Boards, these students are given the tools to study for a brighter future.
