$2.5 million expected to be raised at the black-tie gala held in conjunction with the 2017 Chicago Auto Show in February. Now in its 26th year, First Look for Charity has become one of Chicago most anticipated charitable events.

The coming First Look event, on Feb. 10, gives benefactors the chance to see North America largest auto show amid an atmosphere not present during the show 10-day consumer run. About 10,000 attendees at the charity gala will be treated to hors oeuvres; champagne, wine, beer and soft drinks; and special entertainment presented by the automakers in their displays. Benefactors in attendance also have the chance to win a 2017 Lexus NX or a 2017 Acura TLX.

First Look for Charity stands as one of the special events on the winter schedules of Chicago socialites and car buffs.

The Chicago Auto Show is uniformly regarded as the finest auto show in the country, but the charitable cause demonstrates that this auto show is about more than just vehicles and accessories, said Mike McGrath, Chicago Auto Show chairman. It’s also about giving something to the charities of our community.
