First Look for Charity 2018

Posted By Franciscan Ministries

Franciscan Community Benefit Services has again been chosen as one of the charities to benefit from the 2018 Chicago Auto Show’s First Look for Charity.

Sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago, Franciscan Community Benefit Services is one of 18 charities chosen by the Chicago Auto Trade Association to benefit from First Look for Charity – a black tie, sneak preview of the Chicago Auto Show, which pampers its guests with elegance not present during the public portion of the show. Be among the first to see hundreds of new cars and trucks – some on display for the first time anywhere – and enjoy world class hors d’oeuvres and beverages.

First Look for Charity is scheduled for Friday, February 9 from 7 to 11 p.m. at McCormick Place, King Drive at 23rd Street, in Chicago. Tickets are $275 and are tax deductible.

First Look for Charity stands as one of Chicago’s largest single-day events – raising more than $42 million since 1992. Even in a city teeming with black-tie fundraisers, First Look for Charity, annually prominently appears on the calendars of both socialites and car buffs, as one of Chicago’s most bountiful charitable causes.

The evening begins with an array of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails in the Franciscan Community Benefit Services hospitality suite. The suite opens at 5:00 p.m.

Proceeds from this event will help women and children escape the cycle of domestic violence, assist disadvantaged young women in receiving a quality Catholic high school education and provide seniors with financial assistance for their care.

For more information or to order tickets, call Franciscan Community Benefit Services at 331-318-5200.
