Thank you for supporting Friends of Prentice

The Friends of Prentice Gala is a black tie event held each June at Navy Pier, and attended by almost 800 business, community and civic leaders. Last year, with your support, Friends of Prentice raised almost $1 million for patient care, research, and educational initiatives. Our annual gala is our principal means of raising significant philanthropic funds to support the new Prentice Women's Hospital, which is the most preferred hospital for women's healthcare in Chicago.
Since 1986, Friends of Prentice, through its generous supporters, sponsors and board members, has raised nearly $19 million to fund programs and capital projects at Prentice Women's Hospital.
