Green Tie Ball XXV
















Celebrating our 25th Annual Green Tie Ball in 2016, Chicago Gateway Green’s famous gala raises funds for CGG’s Expressway Partnership Program. Inaugural Green Tie Ball co-chairs Lara Shiffman and Neal Zucker are back to chair Green Tie Ball XXV and they are “getting the band back together.”

The Green Tie Ball, Chicago Gateway Green’s signature fundraising gala made its first appearance in 1992. What began as a 500-person party held in the street is now one of the most well-known and exclusive charity fundraising events in Chicago, attended annually the city’s most influential professionals and celebrities. Each year, the event is marked by multiple stages of eclectic entertainment; and a unique indoor-outdoor venue to celebrate the green spaces of the city. And as always, we will feature delectable bites from many of Chicago’s top restaurants including lobster lollipops, caviar, tuna tartar cones, Shrimp, Prime rib sliders and much more!
