2016 Chicago Auto Show Sneak Preview First Look for Charity Preview Event

January 21, 2016

First Look for Charity is the premiere gala event of the winter and what makes it even more special is that its proceeds are donated to almost 20 charities in the Chicago area.  I have been to the event in the past and truly enjoyed it!  So when I received an invite to the preview event I was extremely excited!  It was held at the Chicago downtown McGrath Acura dealership.  There were 100 people in attendance, from reporters, publishers, bloggers and social media influencers.  All gathered to sample scrumptious bites from a handful of highly-acclaimed, Chicago-based chefs.


First Look for Charity is considered one of Chicagoland’s largest single day charitable events.  Over the last 24 years they have raised over $42 million dollars for local charities.  This year First Look for Charity will benefit 18 local organizations.


The 25th Annual First Look for Charity black tie gala will be held on Friday, February 12th from 7-11 PM.  It is an event you don’t want to miss!


  •      Guest will be among the first to see hundreds of new cars and trucks – some of them on display for the first time anywhere!


  •      Attendees will enjoy world class hors d’oeuvres and beverages.


  •      The gala will be well attended with socialites, car buffs, local celebrities and you, so why not come out and mix and mingle


  •     Lastly, two attendees will win either a 2016 Lincoln MKX or a 2016 Jeep Renegade.

*MKX compliments of The Lincoln Motor Company and Chicagoland Lincoln dealers, Renegade compliments of Chrysler Jeep Dodge and Ram  and Chicagoland Jeep dealers.
