Gear up for the Green Tie Ball at free preview party

Green Tie Ball


The 19th annual Green Tie Ball is coming up. Get a glimpse of the action planned for fall at a free preview party from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 30, at Rockit Bar & Grill in River North. The party features an open bar, complimentary appetizers and a chance to buy discounted advance tickets to the September affair.

The black-tie gala, Chicago’s most upscale street fest, is planned for Saturday, Sept. 17, at A. Finkl & Sons, 2011 N. Southport Ave., Chicago. The event benefits Chicago Gateway Green, celebrating its 25th anniversary of greening and beautifying Chicago expressways, gateways and neighborhoods.

This year’s “Classic Hollywood” motif commemorates Chicago’s silver-screen history and honors Chicago Gateway Green’s silver anniversary. Scores of Chicago’s top restaurants will cater the outdoor fete, which also offers multiple entertainment stages and prime people watching.
