Description

HOW DO YOU POWER YOUR PLAY?

The Power of Play is After-School All-Stars Chicago's annual fundraiser and adult dodgeball tournament hosted by the Young Professionals Board.

ASAS invites you to join us for The Power of Play, an evening of fun, food, and philanthropy. The Power of Play will host over 100 up and coming young professionals from across the city representing companies such as Mars Wrigley, Morgan Stanley, UPS, Deloitte, News America Marketing, RSM, and United Way of Metropolitan Chicago. The night will feature a 12-team dodgeball tournament, drinks, and hors d’oeuvres, and a lounge for spectators.

The Power of Play highlights the importance of play, which for many kids is a simple childhood rite of passage. Yet for thousands of children in Chicago, particularly on the south and west sides, the option to play simply does not exist. As the daily headlines suggest, Chicago’s landscape has become violent and turbulent leaving children living in our most vulnerable communities’ little options to grow and thrive. After-School All-Stars counteracts this by partnering with schools to keep their lights on after 3:00 pm and offering programs that identify and fuel our kids’ passions and interests.
