Carnaval —
An Annual Gala to Benefit Mission at Fourth Church

Carnaval 2014 | Make Reservations | Enter the Vespa Drawing

What began as a sock hop to support the Lorene Replogle Counseling Center eventually grew into the Mission Benefit and then became Carnaval. This festive annual gala, held early each year, supports the local mission outreach of Fourth Church—specifically the programs of Chicago Lights, the Center for Life and Learning, and the Counseling Center.

Carnaval offers opportunity to gather for a sit-down dinner and dessert, dance to the music of a live orchestra, and take part in live and silent auctions, all while both enjoying the fellowship of Fourth Church friends and also supporting the life-changing work of, among others, Chicago Lights Tutoring and Summer Day, Urban Farm, and the Elam Davies Social Service Center.

All are invited to join in this fun and important evening!
