It's time again to Raise the Roof for Music Education! |
During the coming year, IMW's in-school, after-school, and summer music programs will provide access to instruments, instruction, performance, and mentorship to hundreds of children across Chicago who would not otherwise get the opportunity; but to make it happen, we need to raise the roof at this event!
Rock The Casbah! brings a rock and roll twist to the traditional gala experience to create an inspired and unique evening which stands out from the rest. The venue is the glittering Alhambra Palace, an exquisitely ornate state-of-the-art venue conveniently located in the West Loop, so guests can come after work.
Our celebrity emcee this year is none other than international culinary legend and local hotspot proprietor "Hot Doug" Sohn, whose establishment was named by Anthony Bourdain as one of the thirteen places to eat before you die.
Special appearances will abound, including a performance by IMW student group The Pop Tots, who at 8 years old are the youngest working band in the country! Unique items will be up for bid at our silent auction including a Private Tour at Half-Acre Brewery, Intern for a Day on AM 670 The Score's Boers and Bernstein Show, and a Steppenwolf Theatre VIP package with backstage tour from Tony Award-winning Director Anna D. Shapiro.
Our live auction will ROCK, literally! That's because our top item this year is dinner for four with Chris Rock in New York City! You'll also get the chance to bid on other top-shelf one-of-kind experiences including a 5-course sausage-centric gourmet dinner for 10 with wine pairings prepared in your home by Hot Doug himself and his staff. There will be set visits, signed instruments, vacation getaways, and lots more!
Tickets are $150 in advance and the event is expected to sell out, so buy early and don't say we didn't tell you!
