2019 Gala Dinner and Awards Event

Thank You to Everyone Who Helped Change the Lives of Those in Need

This year's Gala grossed more than $350,000 to support care for individuals living with heart disease and diabetes, many of whom would have nowhere else to go. We are grateful to the many sponsors, guests, donors, supporters, partners, and volunteers who helped make this evening our most successful and enabled us to achieve a new fundraising milestone!

More than 460 guests joined us on Wednesday, Sept. 25th, at the Hilton Chicago to benefit Cook County Health Foundation

Attendees enjoyed cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and a delicious dinner that was followed by an awards ceremony. The evening culminated with a fundraising paddle raise to encourage gifts to support our efforts.The theme of the evening, The Heart of the Matter, focused on prevention and management of heart disease and diabetes. Both are preventable health conditions that, unfortunately, take far too many lives and have a significant effect on many of the patients served by Cook County Health as well as people across the U.S. Funds raised at the Gala will be invested to support expansion of Cook County Health's Lifestyle Center program which educates and assists patients in developing healthy lifestyle habits that aid in disease management as well as developing innovative initiatives in cardiac care.
