Enjoy Summer Recess at Lawn Ball
The Guild Board of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago Hosts 8th Annual Lawn Ball
The bell has rung, school is out, and summer recess is here! Celebrate and enjoy your summer break at the best outdoor event in town with the Guild Board of the Boy & Girls Clubs of Chicago at their 8th annual summer party, Lawn Ball. This nonprofit is one of the largest youth serving organizations in Chicago serving over 1,600 youths daily. All proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, which has been an anchor of hope, stability, and opportunity in the often chaotic lives of Chicago’s youth for over 100 years.
Every year Chicagoland’s top young movers and shakers attend this important fundraiser for the nonprofit at the beautiful Saddle & Cycle Club. The venue offers the perfect ambiance for our lawn party. Take a stroll through the yard or watch the stars shine while sitting on a perfect swing bench. Don’t be afraid to get a grass stain on your summer fashions too while playing a few old-fashioned games like croquet and horseshoes. Make sure to dress in your best country club attire and be ready to “saddle up” for a good time.
According to event co-chair John Cialone, “For me, the Lawn Ball is the best summer party of the year and helping to raise money for the Boys and Girls Club through the Guild Board is very fulfilling. This year’s event promises to be exciting with cocktails by the lawn and dinner in the amazing Saddle Dining Room, followed by socializing, dancing, and good old-fashioned ice cream bars as dessert. Helping to support the mission, the silent auction items are unique and include everything from luxury trips to exclusive Chicago activities.”
Guests will wine and dine, and bid on unforgettable silent auction packages. Live music from Final Say will keep all of the 300+ guests dancing until the stars come out!
WHEN: Friday, July 20th
6:30 p.m. Cocktails and Silent Auction, 8:00 p.m. Dinner
WHERE: Saddle & Cycle Club
