History of the St. John's Ball
The St. John's Ball was our first ball, held at the Chicago Cultural Center in June of 2017. It was a elegant and heavenly affair that got the program rolling. The event was sponsored by Quo Vadis Young Adults of St. John Cantius. It was so great we did it again the following year at the South Shore Cultural Center.
