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.

Raise a glass, grab a bite, and test your knowledge — the librarian’s rules won’t apply! Prizes awarded to winning teams!

The Auxiliary Board’s annual Devil’s Ball is taking center stage this summer on Saturday, June 23, 2018. Inspired by the book The Devil in the White City, this year’s event will include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, music, and dancing — all on the stage of the Auditorium Theatre. All proceeds from the event go toward the preservation of this National Historic Landmark and its educational outreach efforts.
