2020 Virtual Holiday Party & Online Holiday Raffle Big Success

Holiday Party PhotoCongratulations to the CSI Chicago Social Committee for thinking out of the box and delivering a successful 2020 Virtual Holiday Party and Online Raffle.


The CSI Chicago virtual holiday party was held on Thursday, December 3, 2020 from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm.  35 attendees joined the party via our new Hopin Virtual Event Platform and networked their way through a Holiday Scavenger Hunt for a chance to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card.  Member Alan Itzkowitz walked away with the $50 Amazon Gift Card.


The highlight of the evening came at the end when Social Committee Member Kevin Carter unveiled the online holiday raffle wheel which he virtually spun to decide the 2020 holiday raffle winners.  MC’s Brad Schwab and Beth Winkler cheered the wheel ‘round and ‘round as they announced the nights big raffle winners.  The chat lit up with hilarious discussion and messages of congratulations.


Between those who participated in the online raffle and those who chose to donate directly to the foundation we raised over $2,650 for the CSI Chicago Foundation.  We could not have done this without the support of our raffle sponsors and all of our generous members and friends who either purchased raffle tickets or donated to the foundation directly.
