In their commitment to end homelessness, the Primo Center focused on sharpening their purpose and their resolve in 2017 — One Family. One Home — that’s what they are all about. Simple. Clear. It was a natural progression of events that the Center's most important fundraiser, and one of Chicago’s most celebrated social events, The Primo Classico, should also evolve. World-class cuisine, sleek design and style but infused with a new energy and spirit tied directly to the Center's sole purpose. In 2018 we carried this new mission over - with a very special jazz performance by Quintin Primo III himself and the Quintet. A New York City jazz club vibe, luscious dinner by Blue Plate and and very lively auction (with trips to Italy and Ireland!) made this 40th Anniversary a very special one indeed.
