More than 150 guests hit the high sea, or at least the waves of Lake Michigan, on June 19 at the third annual Cruise for a Cause in support of Sarah’s Inn.
Despite the rainy weather forecast, guests enjoyed breathtaking views of the Chicago skyline on the flagship vessel of Chicago Line Cruises. The evening included a prize drawing, hors d-oeuvres and desserts and an open bar.
Hosted by the Sarah’s Inn Young Supporters Committee, the sold-out event was funded entirely by donations.
“The Young Supporters Committee was thrilled by the success of the third annual Cruise for a Cause,” said William Boomer McInerney of Forest Park, chairman of this years event. “This year’s cruise hosted more new supporters and raised more money for Sarah’s Inn than ever before. I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to work with dedicated young people to help our generation break the cycle of domestic violence.”
Founded in 2012 to build a new generation of supporters for Sarah’s Inn, a non-profit located in Oak Park, the Young Supporters Committee helps raise awareness for the agency and its critical community services. Members are responsible for planning and hosting various social and fundraising events throughout the year to provide their peers opportunities to be involved with Sarah’s Inn.
The event raised $10,800 for Sarah’s Inn.
