About this Event

ENoK, a 501(c)3 nonprofit group based in Chicago, IL, runs Empower House, which serves as a safe shelter and educational center for refugees from North Korea. Empower House has been in operation for over four years now, and ENoK is looking for a new home for the North Korean refugees under its care. For more information, visit: www.enok.org/about/empower-house.

Currently, the rental fees for Empower House make up close to 50% of ENoK’s annual budget and expenses. For the upcoming 2019-2020 year, ENoK is looking to purchase its own facility. This will allow ENoK to become a better steward of the valuable resources that all its generous supporters continue to entrust by turning their financial gifts into an investment instead of simply using them to pay off the rent fees. This will allow ENoK to focus more of its resources and energy on improving its programming and services to the refugee friends besides housing.

All the profits from ticket sales will go to support ENoK's effort to purchase the new home for the North Korean refugees.

In addition, ENoK has launched a fundraising campaign page for those who cannot attend the event but would still like to contribute as well as those attendees who would like to contribute towards our effort even further: https://www.gofundme.com/vnkr2019
