2019 Be Mine Fundraiser – Inaugural Event

February 22 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Please purchase tickets for our inaugural downtown Chicago fundraiser that will help us connect forever families through foster care adoption.



This Valentine’s Day, give our waiting children a voice as they ask intended parents to please, “Be Mine.”

Join us for this special Valentine’s Day-themed evening that will bring together guests and corporate sponsors with a goal of raising funds to help children in Illinois foster care find their forever families. Funds raised will go directly toward programs and projects that maximize the prospects of successful placements and adoptions for these vulnerable children, while also funding education and awareness programs for intended parents. 

Let it Be Us is one of the ONLY not-for-profit organization in Illinois, and around the nation, committed to inspiring foster care adoptions.

Through our dedication, we have been connecting children awaiting adoption from foster care with their forever homes for the past four years. To date, we have helped hundreds of children find families of their own.

Our Vision

Let it Be Us envisions a future in which our most vulnerable children have the opportunities, resources and life-long support systems which can best be met by belonging in a family. We’re ready to take these efforts to the next level in order to address the growing number of children in the foster care system and we need your help. We hope to see you in February!
