2021 Benefit Dinner Event


The National Shrine of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini will hold its annual benefit dinner event on Thursday, October 7th from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at the Chicago Yacht Club, 400 E. Monroe St. Chicago, 60603. Our emcee and auctioneer for the evening will be our well-known, award- winning Chicago journalist, Janet Davies.

Each year we come together to celebrate our community and our beloved Saint, Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini.  This year we celebrate Mother Cabrini and her contributions to Chicago along with the impact she made in education, healthcare, and on the social well-being of countless lives in Chicago and beyond. 

Proceeds for this year’s benefit will provide important support for our Shrine Ministries, Programming and Special Events.  Without this support, our Shrine mission, and our ability to foster the development of each human and spirit, becomes vulnerable.  We are eternally grateful for this support.

The evening  begins at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour followed by a seated, plated dinner. Seating is limited to 150 people.
