McCormick Place is holding an event called First Look for Charity Fundraiser. This is a sneak peek at the nations largest and longest running auto show, with more than 1 million square feet of exhibiting space. The floor will display more than 1,000 vehicles this year and the benefit event plans to raise more than 2 million for the beneficiaries.
This Auto Show/ Charity Fundraiser Event will take place on February 9th, 2012. This special Auto Show (first look) is for all attendees that are willing to give back to the community (through purchasing tickets). Due to this charitable event status, remember tickets are tax-deductible.
Another reason to attend this wonderful event, is the prizes they will be giving away. Two blessed individuals will leave the party with new cars. There will be some very happy people at this special event, that will leave home with the keys to a 2012 Cadillac Escalade and a 2012 Cadillac SRX.
This years raised funding for the First Look event, will benefit 18 local charities: 100 Club of Chicago, Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago, Catholic Charities Diocese of Joliet, Childrens Memorial Hospital, Clearbrook, The Cradle Foundation, Franciscan Community Benefit Services, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Franciscan St James Health, Ray Graham Assoc. for People with Disabilities, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, March of Dimes, Misericordia Heart of Mercy, Respiratory Health Assoc. of Metropolitan Chicago, Special Olympics Illinois, Spina Bifida Assoc. of IL, and the Jessie White Tumbling Team.
