Elgin Area Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Jan. 31.
Greetings to our Elgin neighbor! We hope your 2018 is off to a wonderful start!
We wanted to share the news with you that Advocate Sherman Hospital will be participating in the Chicago Auto Show’s First Look for Charity event on Friday, February 9, 2018, at the McCormick Convention Center.
As in past years, Advocate Healthcare is privileged to be 1 of 18 local charities benefitting from First Look, which serves as the exclusive black-tie gala and preview event of the nation’s largest auto show, featuring hundreds of new vehicles, some on display for the first time anywhere. Guests of First Look will be transported through an evening of opulence as they peruse the show floor and are presented with tastings of popular menu items from Chicago’s top restaurants and catering companies and signature cocktails, craft beers and wine from various beverage brands.
Will you be our guest?
Your contribution will benefit Advocate Heart Institute and Advocate Children’s Heart Institute. Our 350 heart specialists perform more than 20,000 heart procedures each year – more than the five Chicago academic hospitals combined. Proceeds from this event will advance Advocate’s research and innovation and continue to improve the lives of patients for generations to come.
Tickets are $275 each ($223 is tax deductible) and include an exclusive pre-show Advocate Health Care welcome reception, as well as a sneak peek into the Chicago Auto Show before the doors open to the public. Sponsorship opportunities are also available and include tickets to the Chicago Auto Show and recognition the night of First Look(more information on sponsorships is attached). All First Look attendees will automatically be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a 2018 Ford Mustang Convertible and a 2018 Ford Expedition (must be present to win)!
We hope you will consider joining us in attending this key event. If you are unable to attend, please consider donating your tickets to one of our many grateful patient families.
