Join us to celebrate the Auditorium Theatre in honoring Joyce Chelberg and Michelle T. Boone, two luminaries whose generosity and commitment to arts and culture in Chicago is truly inspirational.   

We will present the Adler & Sullivan Award honoring Joyce Chelberg for her lasting contributions to the arts and her enduring and exceptional dedication to our national Historic Landmark Auditorium Theatre. We are also thrilled to honor Michelle T. Boone as the recipient of the Beatrice Spachner Award for substantially enhancing the cultural fabric of Chicago by demonstrating an exemplary commitment to issues of civic concern, social justice, and community development.

We all comprise a committed, resilient, and inspiring community within our great city, and we would be honored if you would join us as we celebrate those who have helped build the foundation and the future of our shared cultural environment.

We will begin the festivities at the Palmer House Hilton with a cocktail reception, dinner, an awards presentation, and a special musical performance. We hope to see you there! Cocktail/Festive Attire.
