First Look for Charity

North & South Exhibit Halls


First Look for Charity stands as one of Chicago's greatest one-day fundraisers, regularly generating more than $2 million for 18 area nonprofits. Held at McCormick Place the evening before the Chicago Auto Show opens its 10-day public run, the benevolent event is anticipated by socialites and car buffs alike. Guests are treated to champagne, wine, soft drinks, elegant hors d'oeuvres and desserts -- all while being the first to explore this year's edition of the nation's largest auto show. Additionally, gala attendees will have the chance to win one of two brand new vehicles that will be up for grabs that evening. This year, the event will be held on Friday, February 7 and runs from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
