Spring Fling in September. Let’s Get This Party (Re)started.

Save the date: September 22, 2021.

Out of an abundance of caution, proof of full COVID vaccination or
a negative COVID test no more than 72 hours prior required to enter. COVID-19 continues to be unpredictable. With this in mind, we eliminated the surcharge for tickets purchased the day of Spring Fling. Furthermore, in the unlikely event Spring Fling is cancelled at the request of The Merchandise Mart, the City of Chicago, the State of Illinois, or other governing, regulatory or administrative body, The John Buck Company will fully refund ticket costs (minus any credit card transaction fees, etc.), be they admission, sponsorship, or raffle.

Sponsor, Donate & Purchase Tickets

This year we will celebrate The John Buck Foundation’s first-ever “Spring Fling in September.” COVID forced a lot of improv and, after a one-year hiatus, we’re thrilled for Chicago real estate’s premier charity event to return this September 22, 2021 when we honor Marillac St. Vincent Family Services.

Since 1988, Spring Fling has raised over $13 million for worthy Chicago non-profits and this September, we intend to make up for lost time.

We hope you will join us for a memorable evening along the river as we raise money for Marillac St. Vincent’s vital services in early childhood education, youth services, and community outreach, as well as for almost 40 other organizations that count on our support.

For any Spring Fling related questions, please contact springfling@tjbc.com or (312) 441-4106.
