Thank You for an MPowered Evening at Metropolis!

Friday, June 9, 2017
Galleria Marchetti 7 – 11 p.m.

The Metro Board and ABLAS thank the many supporters of this year’s metropolis! The fun-filled event raised some $29,000 to benefit the Legal Aid Society of Metropolitan Family Services and our Empowering Families Initiative.

More than 200 young Chicago professionals attended the fundraiser on June 9th at Galleria Marchetti. After one of our own staff members, Robert Augustin, shared a powerful message about Metropolitan’s programs and the idea of positive potential and impact, Deja Vu took the stage and guests enjoyed an evening full of music, flaming donuts, and a Chicago dining-focused silent auction!

Tthe Metro Board and ABLAS are two dynamic groups of young professionals who volunteer their time and resources to Metropolitan Family Services and the Legal Aid Society. Special thanks go to our event sponsors.

Thank you for supporting metropolis!
