Postcards to Chicago: Annual Fundraiser
Tuesday September 22nd 2020, 5:30 pm6:00 pm

Please join us for our annual fundraiser centered around themes of opportunity, optimism, and collaboration!

Like most things right now, this year our annual fundraiser is virtual! Join us on Tuesday, September 22 for a celebration of the extensive public art installation the Design Museum recently completed at Navy Pier. The program begins at 5:30pm and will run until 6pm. Contributor and VIP ticket holders will be invited to a pre-event reception at 5:15pm.

Fondly dubbed Postcards to Chicago, the project is a tribute to the things that make Navy Pier — Chicago’s premier landmark — unique. Nearly 600-feet-long, it’s a bold, vibrant, and highly visible reminder of what we love about our city. Read more about the project.

For the celebration of the unveiling of this undertaking, we’re offering tiered ticketing with opportunities for an exclusive swag box to be delivered directly to your home. Additionally, all donations will be matched up to $12k by our incredible Board of Directors to meet our fundraising goal of $30,000. Challenge extended!

We hope you can join us and can’t wait to celebrate Chicago and the Design Museum with you!
