About the Big Fish Ball

The Big Fish Ball is Friends' largest fundraising event that includes a fabulous cocktail hour that brings together 500 leaders and young professionals from the Chicago community to the river with an amazing opportunity to engage with river wildlife and a delightful three-course dinner and program that honors the recipients of the Chicago River Blue Awards, the highest achievement in river-sensitive designs along the river. The evening also includes a silent and live auction and a raffle featuring gifts and certificates from hundreds of local businesses. 

Your evening doesn't end at once the final music plays. You can make a whole night of it when you buy tickets to our special Shoreline Sightseeing After Party Cruise that immediately follows our gala. The cruise is a wonderful way to see the river and city’s amazing architecture in semi-darkness while sipping cocktails.

Interested in volunteering next year?  We need greeters, raffle and silent auction volunteers, photographer assistants, and more! Contact Annette Anderson with any questions.
