20th Anniversary

Schedule of Events

Join the Celebration!

We can't wait to celebrate with you! Whether you can join us in person or virtually, we are excited to celebrate 20 years of service with all of our friends! Read on to learn about the exciting events planned and how to get involved.

Let's Gather

Join us as we celebrate in person! The week kicks off with an in-person outdoor gathering on Saturday, November 6th at 5PM at an historic Evanston residence and will feature:

  • A live performance, "Erasing the Distance" by Trifecta Dance Co. featuring 2 birthmother stories
  • The Fat Shallot food truck
  • Signature "Cozy Cocktails" by FEW Spirits
  • Live Music
  • S'mores

Tickets start at $150. Sponsorships are available.

Let's Bid!

Can't join us in person? Not to worry! Join in the virtual, but very real fun by bidding on exciting items in our virtual silent auction!

The auction can be joined by anyone (over the age of 18) from anywhere, no purchase necessary to participate. Bid on your phone from the comfort of your couch - and maybe get some holiday shopping out of the way?

Be sure to mark your calendars as we will be kicking off the auction with a special video celebrating our 20 years of service. The video will be streamed at 7:30PM CST on Wednesday, November 10th. Details on how to watch will be shared here.

Preview the auction starting Saturday, November 6th. Items will be shipped nationwide.

We are currently soliciting auction items. Have something you would like to donate? Reach out to Allison!


Let's Talk!

On Saturday, November 13th, we wrap up our week of celebrating by coming together as triad members, advocates and allies; as birthparents, adoptees, adoption professionals and adoptive parents. Together, we will join in conversation and meditation. We will listen and we will hear each other. We will share space. We will breathe.

Join us for this one hour Zoom. Prioritize yourself by dedicating some time to self-care in advance of the holidays.

This is a unique opportunity to hear from birthmoms and ask questions in a safe space.

Registration is free.
