Snowball is the Junior Council’s annual black tie gala. Tickets include event entry, live band, entertainment, premium open bar, food tastings from dozens of Chicago’s premier restaurants, and after party entry. All proceeds directly benefit the Lurie Children’s Hospital.

On January 18th, 2020, we celebrated our 32nd annual event at the Field Museum. Thanks to the generosity of our 2,400 attendees and 10 corporate sponsors, we raised $275,000 for the Pediatric and Adolescent HIV & AIDS Programs at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

Due to COVID-19, Junior Council has made the decision to cancel Snowball 2021 in-person. Many patients at the SID clinic are being impacted by the pandemic this year and we remain committed to fundraising. We will be hosting events virtually while continuing to support the patients of Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital SID Clinic. We look forward to connecting with you online!

Snowball Week will kick off on January 24th, 2021. We will have videos to share, virtual guest speakers, a virtual hospital tour, at-home Netflix Party & popcorn night, silent auction, and restaurant give back nights to wrap up an incredible week! Keep an eye out for more details to come, and check out our list below for important save the dates!
