On February 24, 2018, FXW will host our signature special event—our annual Gala, which will be at the Swissotel this year. More than 1000 guests are expected to attend this special event. Last year we raised over $600,000 to support the operating costs of the school and FXW’s unique mission of creating diversity through providing scholarships.
Please RSVP by February 17.
We hope that you will support the school by donating an item or experience for our auction.
A donation to our Gala provides an excellent opportunity to advertise your organization to a broad Chicago audience. All auction donors will be listed in our Gala catalog. The Gala catalog is online and distributed to all 640 families in the FXW school community, as well as all Gala attendees. Additionally, all auction donations will appear in our online auction and the BidPal app that all Gala guests use for bidding during the silent auction.
If you have any questions regarding the Gala or FXW, please contact Gala Chair Maura O’Meara at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Join us for our Gala Kick-Off Event: Bourbon, Beer & Big Chance!
We will be kicking off Gala season with the kind of night we can all use every once in a while, especially after the holidays: a fun, relaxing evening with good food, good drink, and good friends (old and new)! Bourbon, Beer & Big Chance (our kick-off event to Gala) will be held Wednesday, January 17 at River Roast from 6-9pm. River Roast is located at 315 N LaSalle St. Please join us for a fun evening which includes libations and a delicious array of heavy hors d’voeuvres. (Dress is casual.)
The first 100 people to purchase their ticket to the event will also receive a Big Chance raffle ticket and be entered into our Big Chance raffle (a $100 value)! There are 5 Early Bird drawings, happening weekly prior to the Gala – the first one happening at this event. The grand prize of $25,000 will be drawn at the Gala on February 24.
