Dear Sneaker Ball Guest,
The health and safety of our teens, instructors, partners, staff and supporters is of paramount importance to us. We are taking the steps recommended by the Center for Disease Control, Chicago Public Schools and Chicago Department of Public Health to protect the well-being of all in our community.
Following these recommendations, we are postponing the inaugural Sneaker Ball on May 2nd. We look forward to rescheduling for a later date. Your ticket purchase will be transferred to the new event date once it is confirmed. Once we have additional details, we will share them with you.
For any additional questions or concerns, please contact [email protected].
Thank you in advance for your continued support of After School Matters.
Don’t miss this opportunity to mingle with Chicago’s rising professional and philanthropic leaders at the After School Matters Associate Board’s inaugural Sneaker Ball presented by Capital One Café, held at the National Museum of Mexican Art.
