About A Night to Shine
For 50 years, Illinois Action for Children has been fostering racial equity and strengthening children, families, and communities through programs that give every child a great start so that families can build a solid foundation that will build strong communities for us all.
A Night to Shine is Illinois Action for Children’s premier annual fundraising benefit. In honor of our golden anniversary, this year’s event will be attended by more than 300 corporate, civic and community leaders, philanthropists, and guests.
