Annual Gala for Lincoln Park

In celebration of 36 years of preserving, protecting, and enhancing Chicago’s largest and most visited park, the Lincoln Park Conservancy will host its Annual Gala for Lincoln Park on Friday, April 24 at the Saddle & Cycle Club of Chicago. The Gala will be attended by over 300 persons and feature live and silent auctions, dinner and dancing, and highlights from the Conservancy’s 36 years of service to Lincoln Park.

The Gala is the Conservancy’s biggest fundraising event of the year, and next year’s Gala promises to be the best and most successful yet. All proceeds from our 35th Anniversary Gala on April 26, 2019 benefited the Conservancy’s 36th Anniversary Campaign which focuses on three major goals in 2019:

Construction of the Sunshine Playscape by early September 2019

Completion of the North Pond Master Plan by September 2019 (with the Pond’s restoration to immediately follow)

Establishment of an operating reserve that will allow for the extension of our programs, services, and stewardship to more parts of Lincoln Park


Sponsorships are also available and provide extensive exposure throughout the spring and at the event. 

Silent/Live Auction Donations

Silent and live auction donations are also being sought. 

No matter how you do it, we thank you in advance for supporting the Gala and joining us in celebrating 36 years of service to Lincoln Park! For more information about the Gala, email us below.
