2018 Gala: Tonight, Tonight!

Saturday, April 7 at 6pm at The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago

Over 300 guests filled The Ritz-Carleton Chicago to celebrate the life of Stephen J. Albert, Court’s late Executive Director, and to honor the significant contributions of Allstate Insurance Company to Court’s artistic and education initiatives. Fabulous auction packages, including international trips and exclusive Chicago experience, received record-breaking bids, raising over $350,000 in revenue for Court, a new record! These funds made a significant difference on our stage and in our community, and your support broadens this impact.

The evening finished with a thrilling performance exploring the creation of the beloved musical West Side Story. Beautiful renditions of classic songs like “Somewhere” and “I Feel Pretty” were accompanied by lively dancing, all while telling the story of the creative collaboration that brought this iconic musical to life. This performance was presented only the night of Court’s Gala!
