Home of the Sparrow gratefully welcomes your support in making our 2014 events a success! On May 17th 2014, we will be hosting our Gala Event at the magnificent Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington Hills, IL.  This “After Five” Attire event will have you completely swept off your feet.  Your evening will include an exquisite rendition of the Phantom of the Opera Organ concert inside the estate which seats over 300 guests, a self-guided tour of the estate to view one of the world’s largest collections of beautifully restored antique music machines., Phonographs, arcade and gambling machines, chandeliers, lamps, art glass.  We anticipate a sellout of this event, with over 350 guest attending.  Our 9th Annual Charity Golf Outing will be held August 25, 2014  at Bull Valley Golf Club in Woodstock.  A  golf scramble, contest, dinner, exciting raffles and auctions will round out the day.  We are excited to announce that Home of the Sparrow has partnered with Family Alliance in hosting our Zombie 5k Run, 1 mile walk !  This year’s event will be held on October 25, 2014 at Emricson Park in Woodstock, IL.

The success of our events is credited largely to our generous sponsors, who lend their names and financial support to the event. The money we raise at each event directly supports our shelters that provide transitional housing and comprehensive supportive services. We anticipate in 2014 serving 220 people in Northern, IL.
