The Occasion: The Women’s Board of the Lyric Opera sure knows how to put on a show—more than 625 guests attended the Opera Ball at the Hilton Chicago and more than 3,500 took in the Opening Night Gala Benefit performance of Jacques Offenbach’s The Tales of Hoffmann.
The VIPs: Opera Ball chairman was Karen Gray of Lake Forest, Opening Night chairman was Trisha Rooney Alden of Chicago, and Women’s Board president is Anne Reyes of Lake Forest.
The Final Tally: More than $916,000 was raised in support of the Lyric Opera and their remarkable singers and spectacular productions. lyricopera.org
