More than 300 young professionals came out on top at Christ the King Jesuit College Preparatory R!SE UP fundraiser June 28, generating $100,000 to fund tuition assistance for 75 Christ the King students. The high school’s auxiliary board hosted the event, held at the River East Art Center (435 E. Illinois) to celebrate their class of graduating seniors, all of whom were accepted to college. WBBM-Channel 2’s Rob Johnson served as emcee and DJ Zeke — son of NBA star Isiah Thomas — rocked the house late into the night.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
