The Carousel of Possible Dreams

Join us in Chicago

On October 6th civic, business and philanthropic leaders will climb on board the Eden Palais Carousel at the Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington Hills and go around 50 time in support of charities that serve children and families in Chicagoland. That’s when the fun begins. Using nothing more than their cell phones, each rider is tasked with a fundraising goal before they complete their laps.

Festival of Children has been an invaluable opportunity for us. We couldn't possibly afford to do the type of outreach that the Festival provides on our own. One of the most amazing stories from our participation in the Festival was meeting a doctor from Turkey who works with blind children there. Through this contact, a new support group was created and we have a new sister school in Turkey.
