We have reached capacity for Cherry’s 25th Silver Jubilee on Saturday evening, April 29! Thanks to all our current and alumni parents who have sent in their RSVPs! Still interested in attending? We’d be happy to add your name(s) to our waiting list in the event someone who bought a ticket notifies us that they’re unable to attend. The event will be at The Crystal Ballroom in The Merion in downtown Evanston. It will be a special evening of cocktails,  heavy hors d’oeuvres, dessert, bidding on silent auction items and the premier of our very special 25th anniversary film honoring Cherry and its mission. Funds raised at the Jubilee support our Inclusion Program for children with special needs and our Financial Assistance Program. View the Silver Jubilee invitation.   Thank you to our generous sponsors!


Visit our registration page for more information about our program offerings for 2017-18 and application process. Our initial registration lottery took place on February 9. Remaining spaces will be filled on a first-come/first-served basis. Interested? Contact us today to schedule a tour!
