First Look for Charity

Event Info

FoodandBeverageMap-250Flowers for Valentine’s Day?

Been there, done that. Chocolates? Also old hat. For 2015, mark the holiday of love with an opulent visit to the Chicago Auto Show, for the love of new vehicles and of contributing to charity!

First Look for Charity, the benevolent event of the Chicago Auto Show, has pampered its guests for 23 years with elegance not present during the public portion of the show. Be among the first to see nearly 1,000 new cars and trucks — some of them on display for the first time anywhere — and enjoy world class hors d’oeuvres and beverages that reflect cuisine around the world.

Even in a city teeming with black-tie fundraisers, First Look for Charity is one of Chicago’s most bountiful charitable causes. The event routinely raises more than $2 million for 18 vital Chicago area charities, and more than $39 million since its debut in 1992. You can direct the proceeds of your ticket purchase to any or all of this year’s beneficiaries, and $199 of each $250 ticket is tax-deductible as a charitable donation.

Not enough? Two attendees will win a 2015 Ford Explorer or a 2015 Ford Fusion, both compliments of Ford Motor Co. & the Chicagoland Ford Dealers Association.

And top off your evening with a stay at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, which adjoins the convention center. First Look for Charity has secured a limited number of rooms starting at $115. Reserve online by Jan. 23 at https://resweb.passkey.com/go/FirstLookforCharity15.

So don’t stay at home on the next Friday the 13th; at First Look for Charity, there’ll be no ladders to risk walking under!
