Campagna Academy is offering a change of season for the right reason.

Friends, supporters and you, my readers, can all help benefit at-risk youth and families in our region by attending our fourth annual Cruise for Charity. This exciting nautical fundraiser is slated for Saturday, May 17 and will feature dining choices from a sophisticated menu, a premium open bar, music, and a silent auction.

Tickets are $125 per person. A bonus for those not wishing to drive to Navy Pier in Chicago is optional round-trip luxury coach transportation for just $10 per person, leaving and returning to Campagna's Schererville campus.

Please join us for an elegant and fun escape on the waters of Lake Michigan and leave this winter weather behind us. You’ll be able to dine, dance to the music, sit back and relax, or mix and mingle to create new friendships and renew old ones.

Check-in and boarding on the Odyssey yacht at Navy Pier start at noon and the cruise is from 1 to 3 p.m., with an extended half-hour on deck until 3:30.

Sponsorship opportunities range from $500 to $10,000. Sponsorship benefits include boarding passes (for contributions of $1,000 and up), recognition in printed materials, signage at the event, and listing on our website and social media. Many thanks to our growing list of generous sponsors who are on board for this year’s event!

Help us restore hope and build dreams for the community’s vulnerable youth and families by purchasing tickets, donating an auction item or becoming a sponsor. For more information, please call (219) 322-8614 or visit
