Cosmos for a Cause

Cosmos for a Cause was another great success this year. Thank you to everyone who attended, donated, and signed up to keep in contact with our organization. We also want to thank the Chicago White SoxDusek'sEarly to BedIcon Theater On Roosevelt, and Mr. Rodrigo Fernandez Sr. for providing awesome raffle prizes our guests loved. And of course, a special thank you to Kroll’s in the South Loop for hosting this event a third year in a row. At Cosmos, we raised a little less than $1,000. Proceeds will help fund our MVP Youth Baseball & Softball Program by enabling us to purchase uniforms and accessories, transportation to away games, and much more. This year, we expect to serve 105 local youth and with your help, we’ll definitely be able to do so!
