Chicago, IL — Project Fierce Chicago invites friends, supporters and community members to attend Breakfast 'n' Beds, its first annual fundraiser on November 9th, 2014 at Celtic Crossings, starting at 1:00pm ( with a VIP lounge at noon ).
The money raised at Breakfast 'n' Beds will support the renovation of a building that will house 6-10 LGBTQ young people who are experiencing homelessness. After two years of fearlessly fundraising, building the collective, developing the organizational infrastructure and searching for the perfect space, Project Fierce Chicago has raised enough money to purchase a building that will soon become a home.
Breakfast 'n' Beds will be a warm and celebratory Sunday brunch affair at a local pub. In the spirit of home, guests will enjoy comfort foods created by community Chef, Fresh Robertson, performances by young people and local musicians, a silent auction, and giveaways of homemade crafts and art. In keeping with these themes, the Youth Empowerment Performance Project will participate in storytelling related to home and family.
Tickets to Breakfast 'n' Beds are available at www.Breakfastnbeds.eventbrite.com, and are offered at 3 different price points, including a VIP option. VIP guests will enjoy a cocktail hour from 12pm to 1pm with live musical entertainment, receive 5 free raffle tickets, and will be sent home with beautiful gift bags. Sponsor tickets can also be purchased for young people who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford to attend.
Attendees can get more information about the event, or get in touch with Project Fierce Chicago at www.projectfiercechicago.org .
