Private Summer Rooftop Mixer at Vertigo Sky Lounge *Complimentary Cocktails*

Join Stand for a Cause as we partner with Vertigo Sky Lounge and Mind as Water for our June Young Professionals Happy Hour Mixer on June 28th. We will be kicking off our summer rooftop series at Vertigo Sky Lounge, one of Chicago’s premiere rooftop lounges in River North from 6 to 9pm.

This is a private event featuring a DJ, great raffle prices and a complimentary cocktail for everyone. Mix and mingle with Chicago’s movers and shakers and expand your network while enjoying the dramatic Chicago skyline, sipping custom crafted cocktails by renown mixologists, and sampling delectable bites at Happy Hour pricing….It’s all for a great cause!

In May, we raised enough money to feed 800 Children in the Sahel. Our June event will benefit The Ugandan Water Project, an organization that provides safe accessible drinking water to communities across Uganda. The goal is to build a 2,500 gallon tank that will provide a stable source of drinking water for about 400 people in the community. For More information visit http://ugandanwaterproject.com/


**There's a minimum $10 donation for the event! Please dress in business casual attire in your favorite summer color.**

    We will like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who attended our fundraiser at Vertigo Sky Lounge on Friday. We had a full house and a successful event, but most importantly we are extremely excited to announce that we exceeded our $3,500 goal on Friday and with your help, we were able to raise $4,126. You all never seize to amaze us with your generosity and kindness. Your money will go towards installing a 2500 gallon water tank for orphans at Children Sure House in Uganda. Thank you once again and we look forward to seeing you at our next rooftop event in July!
