Steppenwolf Auxiliary Council's Red or White Ball Set for 4/13

Hundreds of Chicago’s young arts supporters gather for a high-energy evening of music, dancing, cocktails, impressive local cuisine and a silent auction at Steppenwolf Auxiliary Council’s Red or White Ball on Friday, April 13, 2012 at 8pm (7:30pm VIP Reception).
The signature event for the city’s most active young professionals moves to a new venue this year—Chicago’s vintage-chic Architectural Artifacts (4325 N Ravenswood Ave). Proceeds from the Red or White Ball benefit Steppenwolf for Young Adults, the theater’s nationally recognized arts education program, which annually impacts over 15,000 students, teachers and families. Tickets to the Red or White Ball are on sale now, and can be purchased online atsteppenwolf.org/rowb, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 312-654-5681. Individual tickets are $135 or $150 at the door (if available). A limited number of $250 VIP tickets are also available and include an exclusive cocktail reception at 7:30pm, delectable tasting stations, VIP gift bags, special access to Steppenwolf artists and other perks. VIP Reception attendees enjoy tasting stations from Paris Club, Zed 451, Chef Jean Tippenhauer of FREDS Restaurant, Chef Moosah Reaume of The Pump Room, and a cocktail station from the Master Mixologists of Barrelhouse Flat.

Actors Lily Mojekwu (fml: how Carson McCullers saved my life) and Robert Schleifer (The Heart is a Lonely Hunter) are Honorary Co-Chairs.
