Life in JC

Interested in joining Junior Council? We do a lot more than fundraise!

Member Happy Hours

Junior Council periodically hosts happy hour events open to all current members as an opportunity to socialize and network in an informal setting. Check out our upcoming events for more info!

Intramural Sports Leagues

Junior Council participates in several intramural leagues to foster fellowship amongst members. These leagues are a great way to get to know each other and get outside — we’re kickball and bowling regulars!

Member Meetings

Junior Council holds monthly member meetings on the second Wednesday of every month at The Drake Hotel. These meetings are dedicated to Board of Director updates and doctors/staff from Lurie Children’s periodically come in to speak. After each meeting, we gather at a local bar in Streeterville to socialize and network.

Committee Work Nights

Junior Council holds monthly work nights for members to get together and support the directors in planning and executing plans for fundraising events. Work nights are held every third Wednesday of the month.

Wellness for a Cause

Junior Council hosts monthly ‘Wellness for a Cause’ events at local Chicago fitness and wellness studios, to help promote a healthy life and well-being.


Junior Council gives back to the community by participating in races hosted by the Lurie Children’s Hospital, such as ‘Move for Kids’ and ‘AIDS Run Walk,’ as well as other community partner events like Cradle to Crayons and Brown Elephant.
