Thank you for coming to tonight’s event. Your attendance and financial support means a lot to us, but it means even more to the charities, artists, and children who benefit from our programs.

Your financial contribution supports the Chicago art community and provides opportunities for prolonged success.  Everything is art and everyone is art – let’s support each other and ensure our creative city continues to thrive.
