Opulence reigned at our sixth annual Share the Care Ball, A Masked Affair on October 27, 2017 at The Drake Hotel.
Co-Chairs Suzan Bramson Brooks and Jen Horsley and their amazing committee set the scene and created a magical experience from start to finish. Guests donned resplendent masks and enjoyed entertainment by students and faculty of the British International School of Chicago and the magnificent Ken Arlen Evolution.
Huge thanks to title sponsors ComEd and gold sponsors Raymond James and Corboy & Demetrio as well as all the silver sponsors Neuco, The Leo S. Guthman Fund, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital, JMG Financial, Grant Thornton, OSF Healthcare Children’s Hospital of Illinois, Brown Brothers Harriman, Stantec, Greenridge Farm, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, SC Johnson and inkind sponsors, HY Connect, United Airlines, Brack Mountain Wine, SpeedPro Printers and Vin Chicago.
The silent and live auction, our largest ever, featured artistic luxury and unique experiences and guests were inspired by the testimonial of Carolyn and Emma Lynch, as well as the passion and dedication of the evening’s Distinguished Donors (Patricia Silver and Lynne Rosenthal of the Leo S. Guthman Fund) and Share the Care Champion (Michael J. Kelleher, MD).
Almost $300,000 was raised in support of the children and families at AHK Chicago, making this year’s Masked Affair our most successful fundraising event to date!
Special thanks to ABC7’s fabulous Janet Davies (host) and the dynamic Marion Valle (Auctioneer) and Holtzmann’s for donating an gorgeous necklace for the raffle.
