Green Tie Ball XXVI

Celebrating our 26th Annual Green Tie Ball in 2017, Chicago Gateway Green’s famous gala raises funds for CGG’s Expressway Partnership Program. Co-Chairs Jacky Ferro and Beth Heller are teaming up with an all star event committee to make Green Tie Ball XXVI the best party ever!

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 by 1000 of 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 check back for more details on all the culinary creations from Chicago’s top restaurants that will be featured this year!
