This year’s Gala returns to where it all began — 1925 West Thome — at a special event to celebrate our “Home on Thome.”

GALA Fundraiser Homecoming

Friday, August 23, 2019
6:00 – 11:30pm
Unity Chicago



Our treasured Tudor Revival building has been Unity’s home since it was found and purchased in 1989 by Senior Minister Mike Matoin. Unity Chicago recently sold the 3.5 acre site to our neighbor, Misericordia Homes, a residential community supporting developmentally challenged children and adults. As part of their expansion plan, Misericordia will take down the building in the fall of 2019 and construct additional housing.

Watch for updates on Unity’s new service location this September
and we’ll soon be moving into a new facility yet to be announced.
