Caravan Gala: February 28, 2015 at the Chicago Marriott Downtown

The Caravan Gala, formerly known as the Big Event, is a dinner, auction, and celebration that supports the Mount Carmel Educational Foundation.  The price of a Catholic education continues to rise and as an institution, Mount Carmel remains committed to educating some of Chicago’s finest young men. With tuition growing increasingly difficult for our families to afford, your help is especially important to us this year.  The Foundation contributes annually to the school in order to help keep tuition affordable for all families who want their son to receive a phenomenal education. 

Parking Information

  • Guests of the Gala may choose to park at Row Self-Park, located at 50 East Ohio Street.  A Special Event rate of $24 is available with validation.
