Are you passionate about welcoming refugees and other immigrants to our community? Do you think globally and act locally? Do you feel called by God to join with your neighbors to welcome the stranger? Then join us on Thursday, April 23rd for World Relief’s second annual Global Gala!

This year’s Gala will feature a live African drum and dance performance, a silent auction and raffle with exciting prizes, powerful stories told by some of the people served by World Relief, and an opportunity to show your commitment to providing hope and a future to thousands of refugees and other immigrants in Chicago, DuPage County, and Aurora. Doors open at 6 pm at the lovely Esplanade Lakes (3500 Lacey Rd., Downers Grove), followed by:

  • 6:00 – Cocktail Hour & Auction

  • 7:30 – Dinner & Live Performance

  • 8:30 – Program & Appeal

  • 9:00 – Closing Prayer

If you are unable to attend but still want to make a difference in the lives of immigrant families in our community, you can make a donation using the button below. You can also pay for some of our refugee or immigrant neighbors to be able to attend the Gala on our registration page! All proceeds from the evening will be used to support the programs, services, and life-changing relationships made possible through World Relief’s ministry across the Chicagoland area. We hope to see you there!
