The YOUR DIL Chicago chapter was founded in 2006 and has been growing rapidly ever since. We have organized several successful events due to the support of several Pakistani and Non-Pakistani communities in and around the Chicago-land area. Our team of dedicated young professionals is continually working on identifying effective ways to raise awareness and bringing communities together to support this extremely important cause.
Chicago Chapter History
Recent fundraising events included a Gala, and an Iftar Dinner to fund flood relief efforts in Pakistan. We have built a strong member and volunteer base; and their enthusiasm and commitment have significantly helped us accomplish our goals. We are very passionate about this cause and are excited to continue raising funds in the future with your support!
