Big Fish Ball
Save Tuesday, June 13, 2017
Mix. Mingle. Meet.
Gala co-chairs, David Wong of Certare Ventures and Robert Sit of Site Design Group, invite you to reserve your tickets or sponsor a table - all to benefit the Chicago River system.
The 12th annual Big Fish Ball, Friends' largest fundraising event, will be held on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at The Westin Chicago River North. The event includes a fabulous cocktail hour on the river with an amazing opportunity to get up close and mingle with river animals and a delightful three-course dinner and program where we honor the recipients of the Chicago River Blue Awards. The evening also includes a raffle featuring unique prizes and certificates from local businesses.
Make a whole night of it! Buy tickets to our special Shoreline Sightseeing After Party Cruise from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. The cruise is a wonderful way to see the river and city’s amazing architecture in semi-darkness while sipping cocktails.
Gala Emcee: WGN-TV television presenter Elliott Bambrough, host of the Emmy award-winning weekly food series, “Chicago’s Best.”
