Romeoville Support the dynamic dreams and educational goals of Lewis University’s most financially at-risk students by attending the annual Red Tie Ball September 9 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago. Visitwww.lewisu.edu/RedTieBall to reserve your ticket.

The fundraising portion of the evening is tied together with the spirit of the university as the proceeds support the Mission Fund. Since the Mission Fund’s inception in 2009, more than 340 students who were facing potential withdrawal from Lewis University due to severe financial hardship have been able to continue their pursuit of a degree through support from the Mission Fund. The black tie event is a red tie event to keep in spirit with the Lewis University Flyer red.

WGN Meteorologist Tom Skilling returns as a special guest at the Red Tie Ball. Cocktails and Hors d'oeuvres begin at 6 p.m. a five-course gourmet dinner will be served at 7 p.m., followed by live auction, dancing and music by the Dan Hayes Orchestra.

Reservations are $300 per person and table sponsorship opportunities are also available. For more information on the event or to purchase tickets, please call Lisa Heizer at (815) 836-5545.
