2022 Fundraiser

The Blue & Blush Brunch:  A Premiere Virtual Cooking Experience and Fundraiser! 

Who doesn’t love brunch? We do! 

From the food to the amazing ambiance, Brunch is the perfect outing and experience with family and friends. Our 2022 virtual Fundraiser, JJSSCC’s “Blue & Blush Brunch” will be the ultimate virtual cooking experience with world-renown Chef Julius Russell of “A Tale of Two Chefs.” Chef Julius will show us how to create delicious brunch favorites at home.  We’ll be “cooking with a purpose” and all you need to do is get your ingredients and get ready to cook!

The South Suburban Chicago Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated invites all guests to join us on this exciting culinary virtual cooking experience.  You can even cook with friends in your home! All proceeds from this event benefit and support Jack and Jill Foundation, college scholarships for high school Seniors, and chapter community service efforts. We hope to surpass last year’s amount, and make an even larger impact on our surrounding communities.

We hope you join us! However, if you are unable to log-in, please consider making a donation or becoming a Sponsor. Sponsorship opportunities are available! Please email [email protected] to receive a Sponsorship sheet.

2020 Fundraiser

The 2020 Jack and Jill South Suburban Chicago Fundraiser Committee was excited to present School Days “The After Party”.  This event was held Sunday March 8, 2020 at Tuscany Falls Banquets in Mokena, IL from 2 pm to 7pm.  The attire was Sneaker Chic which is cocktail attire with jazzy sneakers and chucks. The fundraiser committee created a fabulous day party where we experienced an old school college theme after party that was all about partying with a purpose. Our event included “Blue Carpet” photos, luxury raffles, Call to Action, Live Music, DJ, Open Bar and more. One of the biggest highlights was the JJSSCC Jac Pac Dads New Edition performance.

“A Mission, Vision & Purpose for 2020” was our motto this year with focus on raising money for not only National Jack and Jill Foundation, but also to provide well deserving non-Jack and Jill graduating high school seniors with college scholarships. Thank you to the many sponsors and our guest for all their support and contributions!

2019 Fundraiser

“School Days” 2019 Fundraiser, presented by South Suburban Chicago Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. was held on March 10, 2019. Donations from this year’s fundraiser, “School Days-Investing in Tomorrow’s Leaders. Our Mission. Our Purpose. Our Future” will support the post-secondary educational endeavors of our youth and provide quality programming to the community.

This year’s fundraiser was hugely successful! We no doubt partied with a purpose in our “Collegiate Chic” cocktail attire with sneakers. The afternoon was an absolute blast! The band, “Frankie Parker & The Gentlemen” kept everyone dancing and on their feet! Other highlights include: Call to Action, Silent Auction and “Heads or Tails” game. The money raised will be truly impactful for not only deserving high school Seniors, but National Jack and Jill Foundation, and our chapter community programming.

JJSSCC sincerely thanks all our Sponsors, Mother members, attendees and donors. In addition, a special thank you goes to the 2019 Fundraiser Committee that worked tirelessly to produce an amazing event! Thank you also to our Emcee, Fox News Reporter Tia Ewing, President Tonya Coats, our financial team- Treasurer Kim Tyler and Financial Secretary LaTonya Ford, Badia and Nate Legardy and Kimberly Mitchell for their extra support and efforts on our behalf.
