Morgan Manufacturing


Sounds of Silence is CAWC’s premier fundraising and advocacy event. Each year we gather to celebrate the resilience of the survivors we serve and the incredible dedication of staff fighting every day to break the cycle of violence in our community.

Join us for drinks, dinner, and dancing at Morgan Manufacturing, a renovated historic building in the heart of Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. 

Help us break the silence and end domestic violence in Chicago. Your support saves lives and renews hope for the thousands of survivors and children CAWC shelters, advocates for, and empowers each year. By ending the cycle of violence, your gift impacts us all by creating a safer Chicago now and for years to come.

Refund and Covid-19 Policies

What is your mask policy?

 At this time, it is highly encouraged that individuals wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status at the CAWC event on October 21, 2022. This is due to recent variants of COVID-19 and high transmission rates across our community, making masking indoors a meaningful way to limit spread. More information can be found here [] at the CDC website.

Masking is optional outdoors.  The safety of our guests is our first priority, which means we will remain flexible with following CDC guidance on COVID-19 precautions. We will continue to evaluate community transmission and this guidance and will update SOS guests with the status of masking requirements.

What is your vaccination status?

As per CDC guidelines, we highly encourage all attendees to be fully vaccinated and boosted as specified by the CDC (with full vaccination completed at least two weeks before the event) against COVID-19. 

Centers for Disease Control Advisory

COVID-19 is an extremely contagious virus that spreads easily through person-to-person contact. As with any social activity, participation in a CAWC activity could present the risk of contracting COVID-19.

We strongly recommend that all attendees check the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) advisory for adults 65 of age and older and those with underlying medical conditions before voluntarily deciding to participate in any in-person gathering.

These guidelines were informed by information currently available at the CDC and the Illinois Department of Public Health to respond to the evolving public health situation. CAWC events will comply with the current Illinois Department of Public Health regulations and are subject to change.

Refund Policy

CAWC is unable to refund the cost of tickets or sponsorships under any circumstances.
