    Turning Pointe Autism Foundation will be hosting a pre-show reception at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show First Look for Charity event on February 9, 2018, from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. in Room N427AB at McCormick Place in Chicago.

    Fine food and beverages, provided by more than 20 local restaurants, are complementary starting at 7 p.m. Additionally, live entertainment will be offered at various manufacturer displays on the show floor and there is a live drawing for a new car!

    Every individual ticket holder who attends the live event has the chance to win one of two vehicles— a 2018 Ford Mustang or a 2018 Ford Expedition— the evening of February 9th.

    Top off your evening with a stay at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, which adjoins the convention center. First Look for Charity has secured a limited number of rooms starting at $119. More information on reservations shortly.

    First Look for Charity stands as one of Chicago’s greatest one-day fundraisers, regularly generating more than $2.5 million for Turning Pointe and other area nonprofits. Held at McCormick Place the evening before the Chicago Auto Show opens its public run on February 10, 2017, the benevolent event is anticipated by socialites and car buffs alike. Guests are treated to champagne, wine, soft drinks, elegant hors d’oeuvres and desserts — all while being the first to explore the annual edition of the nation’s largest auto show. Tickets are $275 per person. The majority of your ticket purchase ($223 of $275) is tax-deductible and the full ticket price can be directed to Turning Pointe Autism Foundation as one of the event’s featured nonprofit organizations if tickets are purchased directly through our First Look for Charity event purchasing page that will be publically available soon.
