Red Kettle Kick Off in Chicago
The Salvation Army kicked off the holiday season November 13 with Starlighter and Tree of Lights celebrations. Both events signified the official start of The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign which raises 70 percent of the annual budget.
More than 500 leaders from Chicago’s business and philanthropic communities gathered together to celebrate the holiday season at the annual Starlighter Luncheon held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Every year the event highlights client stories of transformation made possible through generous donations, the majority of which are received throughout the holiday season.
