I would like to share another opportunity that Campagna Academy is offering to our colleagues and new friends. We are hosting an exciting event – Campagna Academy's Third Annual Cruise for Charity to benefit disadvantaged youth in our community.

Won’t you please help by purchasing tickets or sponsoring this fabulous, fun-filled event?

This exciting nautical fundraiser slated for Saturday, May 18 will feature dining choices from a sophisticated menu, a premium open bar, a live band, and a silent auction. Join us and enjoy an elegant escape on the waters of Lake Michigan.

Tickets are $125 per person. Check in and boarding on the Odyssey at Navy Pier in Chicago, Ill. start at noon and the cruise itself is from 1 to 3 p.m. with an extended half-hour on deck until 3:30.
