DIY Event

DIY events give you the freedom to use your diverse talents to support our common cause. Do-It-Yourself fundraisers are hosted by passionate families, groups, or individuals who are acting independently of The ALS Association Greater Chicago Chapter.  The Chapter provides the tools, and the DIY part lets you hold your event when and where you like, based on your individual interests, schedule, and budget!  DIY events raise awareness and funds to support our mission and we are so grateful and inspired by the creativity and passion of our DIY event hosts.

There were dozens of amazing DIY Events in 2019. We continue to be amazed by what our supporters come up with and choose to do to benefit the cause.  Here is just a small selection:

Race for a Cure: Throughout the year volunteers sold 50/50 raffle tickets at the Byron Dragway to guests attending the races. 

Oktoberfest: Cheers! Guests enjoyed a night at The Dock in Joliet with delicous food and drinks, plus a stein-holiding competition!

Hair-wareness: Team members at Uptown Animal Hospital rocked ALS red in their hair as a unique and colorful fundraiser.

Poptivism: 50% of sales from this PopSocket are donated to the Chapter. Get yours today!
