Silent Auction Items Revealed!

With our NDAJEE benefit coming up soon, we thought we’d leak the news on some of the fun, beautiful, delicious and worldly items up for grabs in our silent auction!

Die-hard Bears or Bulls fan? We’ve got your game tickets!

Looking for some fabulous dinner options? Choose from gift certificates to restaurants including Frontera Grill, Maya Del Sol, Nellecote Restaurant, North Pond Restaurant, Prairie Grass Café and Vie Restaurant.

Love chocolate, pizza, or French pastries? (And, really, do we even need to ask?) We’ve got some fun food tours that’ll have your mouth watering.

Overdue for a family adventure? We’ve got family passes to the Brookfield Zoo and the Museum of Science and Industry!

Need holiday gifts, or something interesting and new for yourself or your home? Shop our selection of exquisite art made by local and national artists working across a variety of mediums. Items include drawings, photography, fabric and ceramics. In addition, we have unique jewelry including a 15” Jay Strongwater gold-plated steel chain necklace with Swarovski crystals.

Want to expand your worldview? We’re auctioning off a one-year, sponsor-level membership to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, providing free access for you and a guest to public programs and events hosted by the Council.

We’re also excited to offer authentic, handmade African items. Some were made by women in our programs, while others were handpicked by our Executive Director at a street market in Senegal. Amy’s collection of African items includes baskets, linens, wall hangings and more – and they’re exclusively for you!

Best of all? All silent auction proceeds go toward helping our new and returning scholars have access to the education and support services they need to thrive. Your generous auction purchases bring about real results for the girls of Senegal and Kenya!
