Friends of Prentice hosts one signature event each year, which serves as our organization's primary fundraiser.
The 33rd Annual Benefit, themed Casablanca, will welcome over 400 of Chicago's business and philanthropic leaders. The black-tie gala will boast a gourmet dinner, live and silent auctions, dancing to the music of TC Squared, table upgrades with featured wines, a video presentation on our work, and more. Step into the elegance and warmth of Casblanca's famous Rick's Cafe, with shimmery silver and whilte decor accented by palm fronts and glittering candlelight.
Entertainment will feature a saxophonist welcoming guests, then leading them to dinner after cocktails to be greeted by a vocalist and pianist -- straight out of the movie -- playing dinner music.
Since 1983, Friends of Prentice has proudly funded projects in the areas of gynecologic oncology, mental health, heart disease, disparities in access to care, diabetes, HIV, uterine and pelvic medicine, genetic biomarker research, home health care outreach and more. Funds raised during the Benefit go directly to research, education, and patient care programs at Prentice.
Join us in celebrating and remembering the many women and infants whose lives are touched by the experience and compassion of the men and women of Northwestern Medicine Prentice Women's Hospital.
Linger over auction tables filled with lavish travel and gift packages before the highly-anticipated live auction begins. Hot-ticket items are sure to draw friendly competition.
