2017 Shrine Annual Gala
Thank you to all who supported the National Shrine's 2017 Gala! Led by Chairman Florence Sorensen, the event was a remarkable success with over 250 people in attendance. It was a wonderful evening on Wednesday July 19th at the Chicago History Museum which began with cocktails and silent auction in the museum's Robinson Gallery at 6:30 p.m. followed by an Italian dinner and live auction in the Chicago Room at 7:00 p.m. The event also provided an opportunity to honor the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the founding physicians of Columbus Hospital and Columbus Extension West. Our Paddle Raise funded a new piano for our Chapel and overall proceeds from the night's event go toward the maintenance and continuity of the Shrine's mission. It certainly was a special celebration in honor of Mother Cabrini's 100th anniversary of her entrance into Eternal Life! Let us all continue to keep her legacy alive!
Our work would not be possible without your help! Thank you!
