The hustle and bustle of the holidays is officially over and now we count down the days until spring! Like every year, the highlight of December at EVYP is our annual holiday party and we have a full recap below.
If you’ve been following us on Facebook, I’m sure you’ve seen our reminders for our 6th Annual Evening of Revolution on Tuesday February 21, 2017. Make sure you check out the details below for a special, limited time offer.
As I mentioned above, we are already thinking about spring. At EVYP, the official kick-off for spring is our Spring Soiree and this year we are changing it up a little bit. We’re too excited to keep the details to ourselves so we decided to share some info with our closest friends!

Holiday Party Recap: December 21
Every year our holiday party gets better and better! A special thanks goes out to our Program Coordinator, Jenn and the student-led event planning committee! They worked hard to get everything ready including a homemade piñata, a gingerbread house building station, games, live music and of course a pot luck dinner that fed everyone! We had over 60 students, families and tutors join the party and help us jump start our holiday weekend. Thank you to everyone who came and contributed to the dinner!
6th Annual Evening of Revolution!: Tues. Feb. 21
It’s hard to believe we’ve been doing this event for six years! We always have a great turnout, and last year we sold out of tickets days before and didn’t have any available to purchase at the door. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday January 11 for $35, but to thank our enewsletter subscribers we are giving you a special offer.From now until January 11 you can purchase tickets for $30, that’s $5 off the regular price!
Included in your ticket purchase is 2 hours of all you can drink Revolution draft beer and a buffet of Revolutions most popular appetizers. What better way to get out of the house and support a great cause …for just $30?
On Thursday May 18, 2017 we will celebrate 28 years of preparing Chicago students to become first generation college graduates! As we mentioned above, we have an exciting change this year. Our event will be hosted at a new venue, this year we will be at Pinstripes Chicago, located at 435 E. Illinois., the event space opens up to a beautiful view of the Chicago River. Like previous years we will have an open beer and wine bar and a large selection of appetizers. Tickets are $100 and will go on sale later this spring, make sure to stay subscribed to our newsletter for all the updates!
