Just as the Auditorium Theatre offers spectacular performances throughout the year, we also regularly host unforgettable galas, dinner parties, and meet the artist receptions especially for generous people like yourself who adore the Auditorium Theatre and want to support and celebrate our mission-driven work.

In recent seasons, guests and donors have enjoyed fundraising events such as the Annual Fall Gala, Game Day FUNdraiser, the Friends of Too Hot dinner with the stars, and the Ailey Circle private reception with Artistic Director Robert Battle, among others. In addition, the Auditorium Auxiliary Board also hosts several fundraiser events each season including Devil’s Ball and Trivia Night.

All fundraising event proceeds benefit the Auditorium Theatre and its mission to present the finest in international, cultural, community and educational programming to Chicago and to the continued restoration and preservation of the National Historic Landmark Auditorium Theatre.
