Our Boots and Bowties gala is this weekend!  We’re excited to both celebrate LEAD, and to celebrate Peter Bensinger who will receive our inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!

If you are attending the event, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. Check in on Saturday begins at 6:30 p.m.
  2. Event will be held at the Lake Forest Club. Lake Forest Club is located at 554 N. Westmoreland Rd. in Lake Forest, IL and is located on the grounds of Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital. When entering the hospital property from Deerpath Rd, Lake Forest Club will be located at the first available right-hand turn after entering the hospital property. There will be a directional sign a few hundred feet before the parking lot entrance, as well as parking signs located right at the parking lot entry.
  3. Free valet parking will be available. Ample self parking is also available.
  4. The live auction items are now available for preview online. You can click here to preview those items, so that you can prepare for all your purchases in advance!

You will also be asked at check-in if you’d like to purchase a ring for $25 to play an easy and fun game of chance called Heads and Tails. It’s a great way to participate in the evening.

We are especially grateful for all of our sponsors who have helped to make this event such a success. Please view our sponsors below, and we hope you’ll give them your business.

We can’t wait to see you on Saturday night. Remember, check in begins at 6:30 p.m. Please let us know if you have any questions in advance.

On behalf of our gala planning committee,

Andy Duran
