The MOB raffle features amazing prizes, including trips to different parts of the United States and catered dinner parties by Blue Plate.

Tickets for this year’s event start at $375 per person and are on sale now. If you have questions or need additional information please contact Development Manager Andrew Baldwin.

Proceeds benefit every aspect of what we do, from 20 dynamic concerts to "Strong Voices," our arts education program in six Chicago public high schools.
