At Chicago Cares we want to make sure that our volunteers have educational opportunities to increase their awareness of the issues and communities they care about. Sometimes this means holding workshops, other times it may mean informative blog posts, but every once in a while, it means a night at the movies!

If you are interested in senior services, we invite you to join us on April 24, at an exclusive pre-screening of the film, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Starring Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, Tom Wilkinson and Maggie Smith; the film follows a group of retirees from Britain who are looking to make the most of their retirement by uprooting their lives to explore India. This story explores life after retirement and touches on a variety of different issues that affect our seniors.

After the film, our resident senior expert, Rosie Drumgoole will lead a short discussion of the movie and the relevant issues facing seniors in Chicago. This will be a great opportunity to meet other Chicago Cares volunteers and learn more about senior services.

Tickets for this special pre-screening event are free, but space is limited so register today!
