JOIN US JUNE 23RD

The 33rd Annual Spring Fling event will take place on Thursday, June 23rd at The Merchandise Mart Plaza. Alongside The John Buck Company Foundation, this year’s selected beneficiary is Chicago Youth Centers.  Corporate Sponsorship Packages, Admission Tickets, and 50/50 Raffle Tickets are now on sale!

Since 1965, Chicago Youth Centers is the place where possibility lives for more than 1,500 Chicago children and their families each year. Through CYC’s early learning, afterschool, and summer programs, youth ages 15 months to 18 years find joy in learning, grow socially and emotionally, and build skills for the jobs of tomorrow. CYC boldly envisions a Chicago where every child has the resources, experiences, and mentors they need to imagine and build bright futures.

Since 1988, Spring Fling has raised over $13 million for worthy Chicago non-profits. JBC is thankful to all the sponsors and partners who join us in giving back. It is because of these partnerships that The John Buck Company Foundation continues to grow and reach more organizations in need.

ABOUT SPRING FLING

It started as a small gesture among friends. In 1988, John Buck and several founding partners found themselves at a beer garden one sunny spring day. Not wanting to totally waste the afternoon, John suggested they make the outing a charitable function. Everyone put $50 into a baseball cap, then wrote their favorite youth or education program on a slip of paper and put it in a second cap. The moment a waitress pulled the winners, Spring Fling was born.

Today, The John Buck Company’s Spring Fling stands as the premier charity celebration in the Chicago Real Estate community. Over the past 30 years, Spring Fling has raised more than $13 million for Chicago non-profit organizations. What started as six people ponying up a few hundred bucks now draws over 2,600 attendees annually.

HELP SUPPORT CHICAGO'S YOUTH

Spring Fling has built a legacy of offering a better future for children all over Chicago. Our beneficiaries this year are Chicago Youth Centers and The John Buck Company Foundation.
