First Look for Charity 2022
Thank you for joining us at First Look for Charity 2022!
Information about First Look for Charity 2023 coming soon!
McCormick Place, 2301 S. King Drive, Chicago
FIRST LOOK FOR CHARITY IS ONE OF CHICAGO’S GREATEST ONE-DAY FUNDRAISERS, REGULARLY GENERATING MORE THAN $2.5 MILLION FOR 17 AREA NONPROFITS, INCLUDING CATHOLIC CHARITIES, DIOCESE OF JOLIET.
The Chicago Auto Show’s First Look for Charity has been designated an indoor dining event and thus is required to meet the current City of Chicago COVID-19 mandates for food-service establishments. Therefore, in addition to an admission ticket and a face mask for entry, proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required for everyone 5 and older (photo OK); and a photo ID is required for everyone 16 and older. Vaccination checkpoints will be set up near event entrances to verify vaccination status. Failure to prove COVID-19 vaccination will result in denial of attendance. For more information about the City of Chicago’s COVID-19 mandates for food service establishments, please visit https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/sites/covid19-vaccine/home/chi-vaccine-requirement.html.
If you purchased ticket(s) on behalf of others, please share this information with all ticket holders.
Although much of the First Look for Charity event will be similar to prior years, there are several changes to be aware of for 2022. Due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic concerns, Catholic Charities has made the difficult decision to eliminate our hospitality suite this year. We believe that this is the best way to ensure the safety of our guests.
Despite these changes, we are confident that First Look for Charity will be a fantastic event, as always! This is a wonderful opportunity to get a “first look” at the nation’s largest auto show! As you stroll through the Auto Show, enjoy delicious food and beverages provided by more than 20 local restaurants (all complimentary). Live entertainment will also be provided throughout the event. Attendees have a chance to win a 2022 Buick Enclave Avenir or 2022 GMC Yukon Denali.
When you designate Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet to receive the proceeds from your ticket(s), please know that you are helping to shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, counsel the struggling, and protect the elderly. We are so grateful for your support, particularly during these difficult times. Thank you for your consideration and we hope to see you next month at First Look for Charity 2022!
Black tie attire mandatory. Prize vehicle winners must be present at time of drawing at 8:30 p.m. Tickets for orders received after Feb. 3, 2022, will be held at Will Call.
