BluePrints, SOAR's annual benefit, raises funds to support the organization's community programs. At the event, typically held in a neighborhood cultural institution, the SOAR Vision Into Reality Award is presented to Chicagoans in the arts and architecture who have communicated the unique beauty of Streeterville and Chicago to the world.
Our 2017 event will take place on Thursday, October 12th at the beautiful Arts Club of Chicago. More details will be shared soon.
