JOIN US MAY 4th for a festive evening to celebrate our 125th year on ministry and support our outreach programs. We’ll gather at 6:30 p.m. at the Chicago History Museum, 1601 N. Clark Street, in the museum’s elegant Chicago Room, overlooking the park. We’ll enjoy cocktails, dinner and dancing to the lively Flat Cats band plus a silent auction of memorable treasures.

  • > Beautiful framed watercolor paintings of our church by Jonathan Boyer, destined for our anniversary book in development.
  • > A ballet lover’s package of four tickets to the Joffrey “Nutcracker” with its 1893 theme, access to rehearsals, and a pair of signed ballet slippers.
  • > A family membership at the Field Museum of Natural History and a behind-the-scenes tour for up to eight.
  • > Tickets for four to the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s much-loved 90-minute River Cruise and dinner at the Beacon Tavern on the Riverwalk.
  • > A family membership at the Chicago History Museum, lunch with President Gary Johnson, and an insider’s tour
  • > Vive la France! An Alliance Française family membership, an adult cooking class, and a Ciné pass for two.
  • > An authentic Chicago Blackhawks jersey signed by the one and only Patrick Kane!
  • > A Beehive-themed basket of gifts from Prince Charles’ Highgrove Estate.

May 4 Gala FAQs

WHERE DO I PARK?

There is parking across LaSalle Street, just north of the Museum grounds. Your best option is to leave the driving to someone else and take a cab or Uber. We want everyone to be able to celebrate safely!

I’M TRYING TO GET A TABLE TOGETHER. HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE BEING SEATED PER TABLE?

Each table will have 10 seats. If you have put together a table of less than 10, don’t worry. The Gala committee will fill in your table to reach the magic number. When making your payment through Gesture, the option is right there to list your table partners. If you are paying by check, turn in a note with your table partners’ names when submitting your payment.

THE INVITATION SAYS BLACK TIE OPTIONAL. WILL WE BE OUT OF PLACE IF WE ARE NOT IN FORMAL ATTIRE?

Absolutely not! This party is a celebration of St. Chrysostom’s and it’s amazing history. We are sure that some attendees will celebrate in tuxes and gowns, others in cocktail attire, while still others might opt for creative black tie, celebrating their ethnic roots or dressing in attire appropriate for an 1893 special event. You decide how you would like to celebrate this auspicious occasion!

WE NOTICED THAT THERE IS AN OPTION TO GET A VEGETARIAN MEAL. IS THERE ALSO A GLUTEN-FREE OPTION?

The main course selected is gluten-free.

IS THERE A LIMIT TO THE NUMBER OF TICKETS THAT CAN BE SOLD?

Yes, the capacity of the room is 265. If you want to guarantee that you will not miss out on all the fun, buy your tickets now!

RESERVE ONLINE NOW or phone the church office (312-944-1083). Tickets are $250 per person.
