We're back in person again this year, and we're excited to see you at Revolution Brewing - Brewpub on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago!So what is this party about?
Each year, the film industry and its fans dress up and come out to support the working film actors of Chicago. And when you come to our December fundraiser and networking night this year, here’s what you can enjoy…
Choose from a selection of beers, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages for your first drink at the party. After 7:30PM, you can enjoy the cash bar, and we'll have fresh hors d’oeuvres and sweet treats to enjoy throughout the night!
...for our CAFM Step and Repeat, where you can get professional pictures of the star you are! We'll share all your best poses on our Facebook page after the party.
A $20 blinker gives you access to "Heads and Tails," the game where you place your hands on your head or tail, and with a coin flip the crowd is whittled down to one lucky winner for this year's grand prize worth $500!
Items for bidding will include tickets to Chicago's Professional Sporting Events, and the industry favorites "10 Minutes With" local casting directors and talent agents. Bids start at $50* unless otherwise specified.
*Cash or Credit must be paid by the end of the evening to guarantee the auction win. Auction prizes are not transferable and not for resale, and there are no exchanges.
Back for the fifteenth year is CAFM's Premium Raffle! Featuring industry favorites like time with acting coaches, acting classes, and career-building prizes, plus many other prizes that anyone can enjoy like restaurant gift cards, theater tickets, and gift baskets. The cost is $5 per raffle ticket with online pre-sale discounts of 10% off for 10, 20% off for 20, and 30% off the purchase of 30 raffle tickets at checkout!
We will also have special prizes for the Best Dressed Guest and the Ugliest Holiday Sweater! While we normally suggest cocktail attire, you're free to get in the holiday spirit with your worst sweater available. So check your closet and plan accordingly!
1) Attendees are not required to wear masks at the event, but they are recommended when you are not eating or drinking. We will have masks available at the check-in area for those who want them.
2) If you test positive for COVID-19 within 24-48 hours of the event, or are otherwise sick on the day of the event, you can request a refund for your admission ticket.
We've launched $15 and $25 donation tickets as ways for anyone to support the work of CAFM. Each donation ticket is tax deductible and goes directly to help our nonprofit. While it doesn't get you into the party, your name will be shared on our social media channels with all the other donors, and we'll give you special recognition for your generosity.
You can also donate to this campaign even if you are attending the party. Just purchase your admission ticket and then select the number of donation tickets you want to buy. Or make your donation without buying an admission ticket. Either way, we'll thank you! ;)
So join the party, win great prizes, mix and mingle, and celebrate the year! Thank you for your support, and we’ll see you December 11th!!!
***Must be 21 or older to attend. Cocktail attire recommended and ugly sweaters permitted. Please see the COVID-19 protocols for all attendees.***
