Gilda’s Night Out

This year, the Associate Board created a very special GNO that included a Chicago showcase of comedy, dance, live art, and more! Guests enjoyed interactive entertainment, premium cocktails and wine, craft beers, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, and other special experiences throughout the evening. All funds raised from the event supported Gilda’s Club Chicago and its mission to uplift and strengthen people impacted by cancer by providing support, fostering compassionate communities, and breaking down barriers to care.
