Fundraiser to Benefit Homeless District 211 Students


For many students in District 211, challenges start outside of the classroom. One of those challenges includes students and families that are homeless. To help, Realtors Against Homelessness (R.A.H.) works to provide fundraising opportunities and events throughout the year.

R.A.H., in partnership with the District 211 Foundation, is hosting the 2nd annual event to support homeless students. The event is at Schaumburg’s John Barleycorn Restaurant, 1100 American Lane, on Nov. 1, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $25 each.

Each ticket will provide guests with an appetizer buffet and two drink tickets. There will be raffles, a silent and live auction, and entertainment. Last year’s event raised $13,000 to benefit families in District 211 who have encountered hardship from job losses, foreclosures, and downturns in the economy.

Funds will be used to provide clothes, school supplies, grocery cards, and other goods and opportunities that help homeless students to experience high school as they would have enjoyed it before they became homeless.
