31st Annual IOCC Grand Banquet and Silent Auction
Thursday, May 11, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Dear Friend and Supporter of IOCC,
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us for the 31st Annual IOCC Chicago Grand Banquet to be held on Thursday, May 11, 2023, at Concorde Banquets (20922 N Rand Road, Kildeer, IL 60047). The evening will begin with cocktails at 6:00 pm, followed by dinner at 7:00 pm.
Since 1992, generous donors like you have made it possible for IOCC to provide more than $771 million in humanitarian relief and sustainable development programs to people in need in over 60 countries.
We are excited to share that through the efforts of the IOCC Chicago Metropolitan Committee and a generous grant from The Renaissance Fund, IOCC has received a challenge to once again raise $50,000. In order to realize the full challenge amount, IOCC needs to raise $50,000 on or before May 11, 2023. This challenge doubles your donation, allowing us to raise $100,000 to help those in need throughout the world and to support the important work of IOCC.
Your support creates programs that are changing lives and communities around the world—helping people in Syria and Turkey after the recent devastating earthquake, providing vital assistance in Ukraine, Romania, and Poland as the conflict continues, and helping small businesses in Evia, Greece, start over after destructive fires. These are just a handful of programs that are creating a better tomorrow for people in need around the globe.
Please consider contributing to IOCC by becoming a banquet sponsor at the Benefactor, Sponsor, Patron or Friend level. Tickets and sponsorships may be purchased online at iocc.org/chicago or by using the enclosed form. Responses received by April 28, 2023, will be recognized in the banquet program book.
Yours in Christ,
Bill J Vranas, IOCC Metropolitan Committee Chair
