CHICAGO - Stratosphere Networks has announced it will sponsor the Great Blue Benefit, the annual fundraiser for the Alliance for the Great Lakes. This year's event will take place on Thursday, June 21, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Columbia Yacht Club at 111 North Lake Shore Drive in Chicago.
This is the third consecutive year Stratosphere has sponsored the Alliance's fundraiser, which was formerly called the Taste of the Great Lakes. Last year's event brought together more than 300 of the Alliance's supporters and raised more than $200,000.
This year's event will include drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and live music. All proceeds will support the Alliance's education, policy, and volunteer programs that protect drinking water, keep beaches and coastlines clean, and inform people about the Great Lakes and the responsibility to protect and preserve them.
"We're very pleased to sponsor the Great Blue Benefit again this year," said Steve Melchiorre, CEO of Stratosphere Networks. "Our team is always looking for ways to give back to our community, and we fully support the Alliance's efforts to preserve and protect one of the Chicago area's most valuable natural resources."
