The evening will feature a cabaret performance, desserts from local bakeries and restaurants, and a non-traditional live auction.
"As the Evanston Community Foundation has grown over the years, we have helped local organizations grow and achieve their missions," said co-chair Gene Servillo. "The annual fundraiser is a wonderful way to come together and celebrate our community's growth with friends and colleagues, but also a powerful way to raise funds that will enable the Foundation help Evanston even more in the future." Funds raised at Celebrate!Evanston 2015 will support the Evanston Community Foundation's mission to help Evanston thrive now and forever as a vibrant, inclusive and just community.
Tickets to the Celebrate!Evanston benefit begin at $175. Starting in early August reservations can be made online and are requested by September 25.
