Add June 11, 2019 to your calendar and join us for our 14th annual Big Fish Ball, Friends’ signature fundraising event that supports our mission to improve and protect the Chicago River system for people, plants and animals.

This year’s fun, colorful, summer party on the river is scheduled for Tuesday, June 11 at the Westin Chicago River North, 320 N. Dearborn St., Chicago from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The event includes the opportunity to engage with amazing river wildlife, sip some delicious cocktails, enjoy a three-course dinner plus a chance to win incredible raffle packages and bid on silent auction and live auction prizes. Be a big fish so you and future generations can have a healthier and cleaner river!

The Big Fish Ball promises to be a wonderful night as Friends celebrates our 40th anniversary this year and all of the successes to date. A magical river cruise, available for an additional fee, will cap off this memorable evening.
