2020 Gala Moves Closer to Home


After moving a bit north to Fox River Grove for the 2019 Gala, Fellowship Housing will make a shift ‘closer to home’ for the 2020 Black and White Gala. We hope you will mark your calendar for Saturday, February 22nd, 2020 to join us for an elegant evening at the newly renovated Chicago Marriott Schaumburg, just south of Streets of Woodfield.

Every year, the Black and White Gala is a highlight for the Fellowship Housing community. We will once again gather for an elegant evening full of laughter, beautiful stories highlighting courageous single moms, good friends and over the top generosity to empower at-risk single moms to build a new legacy for their children. You can also expect to enjoy cocktail hour, silent and live auctions, live music and a program both celebrating and empowering the courageous and hard-working single moms of Fellowship Housing.

Back by popular demand, guests can once again look forward to the wine pull, including over 150 bottles of red, white, sparkling and rosé wines, each valued between $20 and $100. Every bottle is donated and we would love your help! All it takes is $20. Wine pull donations may be brought to the Fellowship Housing offices from October 14th through February 6th during normal business hours. Don’t have time to shop and drop the wine off? We also accept gift cards to Costco, Bevmo, Jewel, etc. and a volunteer will shop for you, or you can buy discounted packs on Groupon and have them shipped directly to us!  You can also share this link on your social media pages, asking friends and family to give you $20 or more to buy wine. If you choose to contribute, thank you in advance for your generosity!

We look forward to seeing you all at at the 2020 Black and White Gala!
