Tickets cost $40. Money raised from the event will go toward providing transitional housing and supportive services to homeless women and children in Northern Illinois.

The event is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. March 7 at D’Andrea Banquets & Conference Center at 4419 Northwest Highway in Crystal Lake.
