When we close our eyes and dream, we see what is possible.

Welcome to The Carousel of Possible Dreams at the Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington Hills. On October 6th, civic, business and philanthropic leaders will climb on board the Eden Palais Carousel and go around 50 times for four outstanding charities! That's when the fun begins. Using nothing more than their cell phones, each rider is tasked with a fundraising goal before they complete their laps.

The goal is to raise a total of $125,000 for Barrington Children's Charities, Chicago Academy for the Arts, Soul Harbour Ranch Animal Therapy Program, Spirito! Singers and Turning Pointe Autism Foundation.

Net proceeds raised will help Barrington Children's Chairites fund Blessings in a Backpack, Chicago Academy of the Arts fund The Young Men's Dance Initative, Soul Harbour Ranch Animal Therapy Program fund Building the Foundation for the Future, Spirito! Singers fund 100 Ragazze Singers for 1 year and Turning Pointe Autism Foundation create new classrooms!

You can help us turn dreams into reality today. Search for a participant or your charity's team, and support the riders who have committed to this dizzying feat.Thank you in advance for your support!
