      Chicago Lights 27th Annual Gala of Hope

      Chicago Lights, a leading organization that creates opportunities for individuals to overcome economic and social barriers, invites Chicagoans to the Gala of Hope, an annual celebration in support of programs benefiting youth and adults living in under-resourced areas throughout Chicago. Co-chaired by Andy McGaan and Dianne Blanco, the premiere black-tie fundraising gala kicks off with a cocktail hour starting at 5:30 p.m., with celebrations and entertainment until 11:30 p.m. The evening will feature a first-class culinary experience with a three-course dinner and open bar, live music and dancing provided by the Ken Arlen Evolution Orchestra, a mystery wine sale, and spectacular silent and live auctions featuring unique experiences, getaways and entertainment as led by Ron Magers, retired ABC7 anchor.
      Funds raised at the Gala of Hope support five outreach initiatives of Chicago Lights, including Tutoring, Summer Day, Dance Academy, the Urban Farm and the Elam Davies Social Service Center - and the Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being - successful, proven programs focusing on areas including social services, education, the arts, mental health, and economic development.
