Planning for the Lyric's Fantasy Ball

As I mentioned last month, I am honored to be chair the Lyric Opera’s 28th Annual Fantasy of the Opera event on behalf of the Young Professionals Board.

Planning is underway for this spectacular gala that will take place on Jan. 27, 2012 at the Civic Opera House in Chicago.

Usually, this annual fundraiser is hosted by the Guild Board of Directors, but this year, they have enlisted the support of the Young Professionals Board as well. Consequently, this year’s ball will feature a special area where the young professionals can congregate during the evening, and I’m thrilled to be helping select the special menu for the young professionals, create the guest list, secure silent auction items and more.

I can’t reveal the theme of the event yet, but let’s just say that it is dear to my heart!

The Lyric is truly one of the finest arts organizations in the city, and I’m honored to do my part in supporting its mission.

Keep checking back for more details on the event that will feature cocktails, cabaret, dinner, dancing and a fabulous silent auction. Find out more details here.
