The PRIMO Center - ONE GALA

 

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.
