Please Help Me Make History for Lurie Children’s and Charlotte

1 Comment

In just over two weeks, I’ll walk on stage with my irreplaceable co-chair Tommy Horowitz Sheridan​ to welcome an audience of 1,015 to the 60th Annual Gold Coast Fashion Award Show. As a grateful parent, I couldn’t be more honored to have had the chance to pull together our first evening event. It is going to be a glamorous evening of celebration (yes, that means open bar) that you won’t want to miss—come as a couple or gather a group of friends. We are well on our way to breaking all of our previous fundraising records, and to a sellout event.

As you’ve heard me say, probably ad nauseum, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago​serves all of our children, from all legislative districts in Illinois, all 50 states and 48 countries. And if you don’t have kids, you know the hospital serves your neighbors, nieces/ nephews, students….all the kids you love.

Please join me in making history for Lurie Children’s—buy a ticket at http://www.gcfas.com and we can toast our efforts together. Can’t attend? Go to http://www.gcfas.com and buy a raffle ticket or make a donation!

There are fewer than 215 tickets left and they are going fast. Get yours now!

Thanks for all of your support over the past two years. I couldn’t have done any of it without you!

  1. Hi Ilene, Your event looks great! Best of luck! Jim Gold, the president of Neiman Marcus is a cousin and his father shares an office with me.  Look for him at your event. Count me in for a raffle ticket!  Regards from Dallas, Texas.  Phone: (917)843-4150
