FRIENDS OF PRENTICEis committed to superior healthcare spanning the full spectrum of a woman's life. We fund leading edge initiatives that improve the quality of health for women and infants in our immediate community and across the globe.
The annual black-tie Gala is Friends of Prentice's primary fundraising event. The gala features a festive evening of cocktails, high profile silent and live auctions, a fabulous dinner and musical entertainment as well as the gala’s signature feature, the Grand Giveaways. Each year the benefit draws more than 800 of Chicago's leading business, community and civic supports.
The FOP Education Series serves as an outreach vehicle to the community providing much needed health education and awareness on issues that affect the well-being of women and infants. Sponsoring organizations pay a fee and select a topic of interest for them and their guest. The events are hosted at Prentice Women's Hospital and sponsorship includes printed invitations, luncheon and special presentation by a physician leader.
Run for Prentice is the fundraising initiative of Friends of Prentice in which runners sign up to run and fundraise for Friends of Prentice at various races around Chicago. The premiere race is the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, held in October, but runners can also sign up to fundraise for the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle and the Chicago Half Marathon.
