Friday, August 23, 2019 at 7 PM – 10:30 PM At Carnivale
Behind every mask is a story…
Did you know that globally 300 million children are denied an education for the simple reason that they do not own a single pair of shoes? Or that women and children who walk miles for clean water, risk illness and amputation from infections caused by living in unsanitary conditions? For 20 years, Share Your Soles has responded to this need, distributing shoes to people living in underdeveloped communities across the globe. Our volunteers learn that they have the power to change someone’s life, and in the process are changed themselves.
Join us in celebrating Share Your Soles 20th Anniversary on Friday, August 23rd from 7-10:30pm at Chicago’s favorite premier dining destination, Carnivale. Enjoy the sophisticated flavors of Latin fusion cuisine, Carnivale’s signature sangria, wine, a silent auction, games, dancing and live entertainment by Chicago Samba. Cocktail attire and masquerade masks are encouraged, and masks will be available for purchase at the event.
All proceeds benefit the Share Your Soles Foundation.
Share Your Soles is a Chicago-based 501(c)(3) global non-profit that collects gently worn/new shoes, and distributes them to those in greatest of need. Our primary focus is serving children and women living in extreme poverty with no access to basic resources, such as medical treatment, clean water, or even shoes to get to schools. The shoes we deliver provide positive solutions for the miles walked to reach these very basic necessities often taken for granted. We are investing in minds and healthy bodies while providing (or offering) hope for an education, and protection from diseases caused by the lack of shoes. To date, Share Your Soles has delivered over 3 million pairs of shoes, and we desperately need your help to continue changing the world, one pair at a time!
