Dare to Dream 2010...A SMASHING SUCCESS!
Thanks to everyone for making our Dare to Dream Venetian Masquerade on October 8th our most successful to date! The masks & costumes were fabulous, the food fantastic, the speakers amazing, the atmosphere electric and overall, a wonderfully joyous night. We are finalizing all the details, pictures and videos (wheeee!) so come back soon, to see what fun we had, and if you could not make it, see what fun you missed!

Ride for AIDS Chicago
Ride for AIDS Chicago 2010
We joined, we rode, we had fun and we raised some dollars! Many thanks to the sponsors for Team Youth Outlook riders and crew! We had an amazing time. Ride for AIDS Chicago (RFAC) is a two-day, 190 mile bicycle ride produced by Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN), to raise funds for HIV/AIDS services in the Chicago area. The goal of RFAC is to return 100% of pledge dollars to the Ride’s beneficiaries.

Hope to see you all there next year for an even bigger turnout and thank you all for supporting Youth Outlook and all of its great work!
