Musical Cheers

| August 31, 2011 | Parties

THE PARTY The Women’s Board of Ravinia hosted its annual Gala Benefit Evening in honor of the 75th anniversary of the CSO’s summer residency at Ravinia and composer George Gershwin’s legendary music. THE SCENE After the cocktails and concert, Food For Thought served an elegant dinner—including Gershwin-inspired courses like “Rhapsody in Blueberries”: a blueberry mille-feuille and chocolate truffle dessert—in the gold-draped, illuminated Gala Marquee, designed by Event Creative. THE BOTTOM LINE With more than 800 guests, the event raised more than $1 million for music programs in schools. Photos by Russell Jenkins/Ravinia Festival
