2013 Lawn Ball: Havana Nights

The Guild Board presents: The 9th Annual Lawn Ball
Benefiting Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago

The Guild Board's 9th Annual Lawn Ball will be held at the prestigious lakefront Saddle & Cycle Club on July 26, 2013. The evening kicks off on the Saddle's gorgeous grand terrace, overlooking a vast lawn where guests sip cocktails, mingle, and place silent auction bids. A seated candlelit dinner follows, with an inspirational speech and a personal success story from a youth whose life has been positively impacted by membership at the Clubs. The event culminates in revelry and dancing with music.

About us

About Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago

For the past 110 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago (BGCC) has provided a safe haven for youth during the most vulnerable part of the day, after-school. We serve nearly 2,000 youth each day across Chicago at 19 Club locations. BGCC's mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.

About the Guild Board

The Guild Board was founded in 2005 by a group of young, socially-conscious professionals committed to advancing the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago through a combination of talent, advocacy and passion. The Guild Board's 60 members actively engage in raising awareness and funding for BGCC by hosting several fundraising events throughout the year, including the annual Lawn Ball, which has raised nearly $2 million to date.
