First Look for Charity

First Look for Charity stands as one of Chicago's greatest one-day fundraisers, regularly generating more than $2.5 million for 18 area nonprofits. Held at McCormick Place the evening before the Chicago Auto Show opens its public run, the benevolent event is anticipated by socialites and car buffs alike. Guests are treated to champagne, wine, soft drinks, elegant hors d'oeuvres and desserts -- all while being the first to explore this year's edition of the nation's largest auto show. Additionally, gala attendees will have the chance to win one of two brand new vehicles that will be up for grabs that evening.

Since its debut in 1992, First Look for Charity has raised $45 million for significant Chicago area charities such as Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, JDRF and the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, among many more. For more information about First Look for Charity at the Chicago Auto Show, please visit,
