Releve Soiree 10th Anniv

Thank You!

We’re delighted to recognize the Relevé Soirée sponsors, donors, friends and families who made this year’s gala an historic success. It’s only fitting that our milestone 10th Anniversary Celebration would be our most successful yet, raising $170,000, which significantly exceeded our fundraising goal. Because of you, Forward Momentum Chicago continues to open doors of opportunity to Chicago’s youth by providing dance education programs year around. Thank you for your belief in the transformative power of dance, and for demonstrating what’s possible when we all dance toward the dream.
