The cocktail party for a cause that Urban Gateways supporters know and love is back with a swanky new venue on Friday, November 17! We are excited to welcome staff, Board and Associate Board members, and arts advocates to exclusive River North nightclub The Underground Chicago. All ticketing proceeds, as well as all fundraising from the event’s silent auction, wheel of chance, and raffle, help us share the power of the arts with more young people all over Chicago.

Entry includes drinks (beer, wine, and a signature Artini cocktail), appetizers, live performances by Urban Gateways touring artists Chicago Improv Productions and Flamenco Quartet Project, and entry into The Underground nightclub after 10pm.

Urban Gateways educates and inspires young people by delivering high-quality, accessible arts experiences that advance their personal and academic growth. The Urban Gateways Associate Board promotes and supports Urban Gateways’ efforts to offer arts education programs to all young people, while also promoting Urban Gateways artists and local artists/institutions.
