The Carousel of Possible Dreams – Chicago 2018

October 6, 2018 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Sanfilippo Estate

Join Festival of Children Foundation and Sanfilippo Foundation as we cheer on and support the Carousel of Possible Dream riders!

On Saturday, October 6, 2018, civic, business and philanthropic leaders will climb on board the Eden Palais Carousel at the Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington Hills and go around and around 50 times for five outstanding charities.

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.

The evening includes a tour of the magnificent Sanfilippo Estate, a cocktail reception in the Carousel Pavilion and a chance to test drive the all new Karma Revero.


Together, dreams are possible.
