Meet Rick Steves in Chicago – Jan 22

Meet Rick Steves in Chicago – Jan 22

Rick Steves is coming to Chicago in support of the school where his daughter Jackie teaches, and you’re heartily invited!    Join Rick Steves on Sunday, January 22 at 5:30 pm to celebrate and raise funds for Josephinum Academy, an inspiring school in the heart of Chicago that empowers girls to become confident, globally-minded leaders.   The evening will be very simple: no tedious auctions or anything, just a little social time and his 90-minute slideshow sharing the most important lessons he has learned from a lifetime of travel.



Rick Steves – acclaimed for his bestselling guidebooks and public television series – believes there’s more to travel than good-value hotels, great art, and tasty cuisine. Americans who travel can have the time of their lives and come home smarter with a better understanding of the interconnectedness of today’s world. In this provocative slideshow lecture, Rick will explain how to travel more thoughtfully to any destination. Drawing from lessons he learned while exploring Europe, Central America, Asia, and the Middle East, Rick will explain that by traveling thoughtfully you can take home the greatest souvenir: a broader perspective.


Tickets are $30 for general admission. With each purchase you’ll receive a FREE raffle ticket for a Rick Steves Tour. All proceeds go to Josephinum’s important work.  Tickets are $30 for General Admission or $100 for VIP Admission (which ensures prime reserved seating and a VIP Reception before the event). All tickets include one Raffle Ticket for a free Rick Steves Tour of Europe!* Extra Raffle Tickets will be available for purchase at the event!     *Airfare not included. Must be present to win.

Here is what Rick says: “One dimension of parenting I embrace is exposing our children to diversity and helping them to have empathy for others. When we open up to our world, we find ourselves inclined to build bridges rather than walls. My daughter’s mission is just that, and I’m proud that she’s dedicated her career to teaching in under-served urban America. And I’m thankful she’s found Josephinum Academy which shares her mission. It’s my delight to be a part of this fundraiser.

I can promise you’ll find the evening stimulating as well as entertaining, and that the $30 you donate to the school will make a real difference.

Jackie and I hope to see you there.”
