"What a simple thing you can do to be a light in this world....GO TO A PARTY!"
- John Pitzaferro
Not your typical fundraiser, it's really a party! Attire is always casual, drinks are free, and fun is guaranteed.
After returning from an OrphaNetwork trip to Nicaragua in 2010, John Pitzaferro knew he needed to do something to help the kids he met. His solution? Throw a Party! Each year since, Party with a Purpose has brought together 400+ people for awesome live music, great food, games, auctions, raffles, and fun. If you haven’t been, you’re missing out – join us this year of an unforgettable evening! Party with us to help feed and provide medical care for more than 1,200 at risk children in Nicaragua.
8th Annual Party with a Purpose

These are words that you're likely to hear shared between Party with a Purpose volunteers, staff, and past party goers.
“Every Orphaned Child Fully Reaching Their God Given Potential.” John Pitzafero, his family, and business (TransNational Payments), are absolutely committed to seeing this community transformed by supporting its most important resource (THE CHILDREN!). In addition to owning the cost of the feeding and medical care, John, family, and TransNational staff have visited Nueva Vida yearly to both check up on the kids (literally participating in their medical care) and learn more about ORPHANetwork and their work in Nicaragua. 100% of Party with a Purpose proceeds fund a program that provides daily meals and medical care to more than 1,200 at-risk children through a Nicaragua-based 501(c)3 named ORPHANetwork. The program is located in a former refugee camp area named Nueva Vida (New Life).
From our community to theirs...
Party with a Purpose wouldn’t exist without a dynamic and growing community of neighbors, family, friends, coworkers, and Chicagoland businesses. A special thanks goes out to all of our 2017 sponsors!
