Rockin' Shoppin' In The C.I.T.Y. 2019


We hope you can join us IN PERSON on Sunday, November 17th!

Sunday, November 17th from 11am-2pm at HOME Restaurant and Bar in Arlington Heights 

Over 20 local vendors/artisans will be selling their unique gifts, perfect for the teachers, therapists, family, & friends on our holiday shopping lists! This HUGE space not only will have food & drinks available, but they will also host the local rock cover band, VALIUS, creating a truly "rockin" experience. (Please keep that in mind if you plan to bring any sensitive listeners!)  

All are invited: parents, therapists, and community members! To help us plan, we encourage you to register prior to the event at (and receive a free raffle ticket in return!); however, walk-in guests will also be happily welcomed.   In addition to raising funds through raffle purchases, the different shop-owners have generously agreed to donate at least 10% of their profits to C.I.T.Y. of Support during this event.  All of the proceeds from our Rockin' Shoppin' event will go directly back to our 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.  Thanks so much for participating in either the in-person or online options.

ONLINE Participation Options:

1.  Online Raffle: Starting NOW through Saturday, November 16th at Midnight 

If you aren't able to attend our event in person, you are still able to participate in our amazing raffle by purchasing tickets online.  Each vendor/artisan has generously contributed a basket of their unique goods (with an estimated value of at least $50) to be included in our raffle.  Scroll down to look through these unique gifts, and then click on the PayPal button to purchase your tickets.  (Be sure to indicate the basket number(s) that you are selecting when purchasing your tickets.)  Raffle participants do not need to be present to win; however, you will need to arrange prize pick-up if the item is large and/or difficult to ship.

2.  Online Shopping

We hope you will be able to shop with our incredible and local vendors/artisans in person, but if you aren't able to make it and would still like to support their businesses, several of the shop-owners will be offering donations to our organization with online purchases made during the following week, through Sunday, 11/24 at midnight.  More information, including links to the online shops and special codes to indicate your affiliation with C.I.T.Y. of Support, will be posted immediately following our live Rockin' Shoppin' event.
