Wine, dine, and shop to create jobs and lift communities.
This year’s fundraiser is going to be a blast! We are excited to announce a new location, and an expanded socially responsible Silent Auction. Enjoy delicious Italian food, inspirational speakers, and more — all while supporting our mission to create jobs and lift communities out of poverty. Tufano’s is a classic Italian joint with a great ambiance for mingling, shopping, and sipping.
There is limited seating, so purchase your tickets today. We can’t wait to see you there!
Around the world, there are countless individuals struggling to achieve even the most basic of human needs. Some are artisans in impoverished countries, others are homeless veterans, troubled youth, the blind and visually impaired, or adults with developmental delays.
That’s where HHP comes in.
We partner with fair trade organizations in the U.S. and around the world to provide job opportunities for those in need. These individuals include artisan bowl-makers in India, expert women weavers in Colombia, jewelry-makers in Ecuador and Chile, homeless veterans in Chicago, and many more.
We are so passionate about lifting people out of poverty, we even have our own spa goods workshop and job creation program here in Chicago, 1eleven®. At 1eleven®, individuals with barriers to employment are on-boarded to produce beautiful spa goods. They are quickly cross-trained through our leadership program to learn all facets of HHP’s business with the goal of success at HHP and beyond.
