Qatar Airways supports Chicago's Primo Center for Women and Children

For the third consecutive year, Qatar Airways is a sponsor of the Primo Classico d´Europa, a celebration of food, fashion and classic automobiles, benefitting Chicago´s Primo Center for Women and Children.

The airline, which has been connected to Chicago since April 2013 served as a major sponsor, and helped secure charitable donations through the event´s live auction.

The annual event was hosted at Hawthorne Global Aviation Services and was a showcase for Chicago´s finest European automobiles from Lake Forest Sportscars.

For 30 years, The Primo Center has fought to reduce homelessness in the greater Chicago area by empowering women and children to become productive, responsible and independent members of their communities. The group provides transitional housing, counseling and support services including education, parental training and employment retention services.

Qatar Airways is a strategic partner of Educate a Child, a program that aims to significantly reduce the number of children worldwide who are denied their fundamental right to education; an extension of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser of Qatar´s mandate as a UNESCO Special Envoy on Basic and Higher Education.
