Saint Clement's only fundraising event to benefit both the Church and School.

Anchor Ball is Saint Clement's annual spring gala that celebrates our vibrant community while raising funds for our church, school, and the many ministries our parish serves throughout Chicago. 

  • The goal of Anchor Ball is to raise $300,000 to cover the church and school current year operating budget. The funds raised are equally divided between the church and school.
  • In addition, there is typically a Paddle Raise. The specific project/use of funds varies from year-to-year and a Clement Commits portion (now 10%) is always designated to an outside charitable organization​.

You spoke, we listened. Anchor Ball 2019 will be out of this world! We are headed to the Adler Planetarium for a galaxy gala night of fun. We can't think of a better way to gather as friends, parents, and parishioners than by Lake Michigan looking out at our beautiful city. You won't want to miss it!
