Graceful Evening moves to Oak Park’s Nineteenth Century Club this year, at 178 Forest Avenue. The festivities on Saturday, March 14, begin with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at 5:30 p.m., followed by a delicious sit-down dinner. There will be the usual array of tempting silent auction items, the Dessert Dash, wine and whiskey pulls, and 50/50 and champagne raffles.

The Fund-A-Need paddle raise project this year supports “Peaceful Bodies, Productive Minds,” and will provide ergonomic and inclusive work spaces for both students and teachers. Physically calming spaces support successful learning for all children!

There are many ways to support Grace School through Graceful Evening: sponsorships, advertising in the program booklet, donations of auction items, gift certificates, or a bottle of wine or whiskey. Look for more information in your mail, or pick up the donation form from the rack by the school office.

If you have questions about sponsorships, ads, donations — anything — contact the event chairs, Emily Hartung and Amanda Steelman, at , or talk with Brian Schultz, Assistant School Administrator ( ; 708-366-6900, ext 231).
