GACI Global New Year Meet-Up in Chicago

30th-31st December 2022

Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile

The GACI Global New Year meet-up is taking place in the Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile Hotel (511 North Columbus Drive, Chicago) on December 30th-31st.  This beautiful hotel is very central, and the room rate includes breakfast.

Thanks to a generous events grant that we were awarded, GACI Global is able to provide travel grants to families attending the meet-up.  A grant of $700 is available to families driving to the meet-up, and a grant of up to $1,000 is available to families flying to Chicago for the meet-up.  As well as travel grants, GACI Global will cover the cost of some family-friendly activities on December 30th and 31st, and dinner on New Year’s Eve.

Families will book and pay upfront for their own hotels/travel costs and will be reimbursed up to the agreed travel grant (receipts required).  This travel grant is open to families with surviving patients and also to those who have suffered the loss of a child to GACI.  Grants are limited to one grant per patient family.  The closing date for receipt of grant applications has been extended to Dec 2nd, 2022.
