Join the cast of Second City’s “Ladies Night In” and a host of celebrity guests to support Gilda’s Club Chicago  

September 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A Message from LauraJayne Hyde – CEO Gilda’s Club Chicago

This has been a challenging year for all of us and we’ve all had to improvise.

Gilda’s Club Chicago transitioned from in-person programs to virtual programs in March and has been delivering over 150 programs every month. In support of this herculean effort, we hope you’ll join us virtually on Friday, September 25 at 6:00 p.m. CDT for Yes, and… An Improvised Gala. Take a break, have some laughs and be a part of Gilda’s Club’s mission of providing social and emotional support for anyone impacted by cancer.

Yes, and… is only two words, but one incredibly powerful thought. In improvisational theater, it is an acceptance of the moment you are in and the challenge of building from there. It represents both courage to face what is thrust upon you and resilience to forge ahead and to create something better. Yes, and… is what our members do every day. Your support of this event will help Gilda’s Club Chicago continue our vital virtual programming and expand our ability to reach everyone in need.

We cancelled our key fundraising events this year, including the Annual Awards Dinner, the Associate Board’s Untapped, several running events including the Chicago Marathon, and our Friends of Marlene Golf Outing. All of this has been devastating to our ability to raise funds to help us continue to serve our mission.

So, with Yes, and... An Improvised Gala we pull together our entire community – the Governing Board, the Associate Board, Friends of Marlene, our generous friends at the Wheels in Motion Foundation, our volunteers, our members, corporate and foundation partners, and our staff – to dedicate ourselves to raise the funds needed for Gilda’s Club Chicago to move forward and grow.

With that, I would like to again invite you to register now for Yes, and… An Improvised Gala on Friday, September 25 at 6:00 p.m. CDT. The show will star current Second City members and feature many special guest appearances.

Thank you for supporting our mission. We hope you enjoy the show!
