Join us at Ovation on Thursday, November 16, at the first-ever Gather: the I Grow Chicago Gala! Gather: the I Grow Chicago Gala will feature delectable bites from high-end, boutique caterers and delicious wine, beer, and cider from Cream Wine, Lagunitas Brewery, and Virtue Cider. Spend the evening socializing, enjoying food and drink, dancing the night away to amazing music from DJ Megan Taylor, and bidding on an array of amazing silent auction items such as a staycation at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, a romantic couples retreat at Allyu Spa, and a special tasting menu experience at The Publican. Early bird tickets are available until October 1 and include entry to the event as well as an open bar provided by Lagunitas Brewing, Virtue Cider, and Cream Wine, and food provided by Gene & Georgetti and more. Looking for a unique way to give an Englewood resident a unique experience? Consider adding on a community member sponsorship, which will allow a community member from I Grow Chicago the chance to attend and enjoy the event, as well as offset the cost of a new outfit. Upgrade your ticket to a VIP ticket for an amazing pre-event VIP reception from 6-7 p.m. The VIP reception will feature a special tasting menu prepared by Feast & Imbibe and complimentary wines. A very limited number of tickets are available for this unique experience! Curious about dress code? We encourage attendees to dress in "cool cocktail" or "urban chic" attire. Leave your gown and tux at home and wear something fun and celebratory -- a fun cocktail dress, jeans with a chic blazer, or cool pants with a shirt and tie. Think semi-dressy but fun -- and show off your personal style! Also consider adding a donation that helps to support a specific need of our community. Buy school supplies for a child in need, help provide access to a computer for those completing our GED program, support women in the community through our Women's Group, and more. See all the opportunities below and the suggested donation amount. Buy tickets and gather with us as we support Englewood at Gather: The I Grow Chicago Gala on November 16!
