How to Get Involved
Host a Mingling
Mingling for a Mission hosts events every quarter. This means there is always need for a new venue. Since 100% of the proceeds from these events go towards the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross, the planning committee is looking for space to be donated.
Each Mingling for a Mission event will draw in 150 of the most civic-minded young professionals in the Chicago area as well as allow local venues to partner with an established non-profit.
If you know a venue that may be interested, please email Sarah.Herczog@redcross.org.
