Gilda’s Night Out

In September, the Gilda’s Club Chicago Associate Board hosted Gilda’s Night Out with music provided by Pat McKillen. Everyone enjoyed a beautiful, fun-filled evening on the lakefront as it was great to be back together in an outdoor setting at the Columbia Yacht Club. The evening raised close to $30,000 in support of our mission.

Join the Associate Board of Gilda's Club Chicago for "Untapped", their annual craft beer tasting event. Beer enthusiasts and foodies will enjoy food pairings from Goat Group Catering, Goose Island craft beers, tours of the Barrel House, and the chance to win fabulous prizes. Proceeds from the event benefit Gilda's Club Chicago, a free support community for men, women, children, families and friends impacted by cancer.
