Auditorium Theatre's 2024 Annual Gala

Published: May 20, 2024


On behalf of the Auditorium and our Board of Directors, thank you for joining us for the Auditorium’s 2024 Gala Celebration! We are so grateful that you were in attendance at the Palmer House on Thursday, May 9, for this wonderful occasion that included a cocktail reception, dinner, an awards presentation, an outstanding performance from the incomparable E. Faye Butler, and the wonderful company of 240 guests.

We are also pleased to say that because of so many dear friends, we were able to raise more than $268,000 to support the Auditorium’s mission! We also cannot think of two people more deserving of recognition than Joyce Chelberg and Michelle T. Boone. Their acceptance speeches were sincere, touching, and inspiring.

Thank you, again, for your exemplary devotion to the Auditorium, and to arts and culture in Chicago—and thank you for the faithful friendship you share with us all.

There’s still time to support the 2024 Annual Gala! If you have not already done so, please consider a gift to support the Auditorium and the performing arts in Chicago.
