The Woman’s Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital is proud to present the Opening Night Party of the Chicago Antiques + Art + Design Show. Proceeds from ticket purchases and sponsorships of the Opening Night Party will benefit programs and patient care initiatives supported by The Woman’s Board, including the Board’s most recent major commitment to fund the study of collaborative mental health care in Northwestern’s primary care clinics in Chicago. Through this study, The Woman’s Board is helping to improve access to mental health care in our community.

We hope you’ll join us for the Opening Night Party offering cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, complimentary valet parking, and the opportunity for serious collectors to shop the show before it opens to the public. Tickets will offer return entry all weekend and a show catalog, as well as access to Friday’s Lecture Series. The Opening Night Party will take place at the Merchandise Mart on Thursday, May 17, 2018, 6 – 9 p.m. Please contact the Woman’s Board office, 312-926-9138, for more information.
