The Cradle Goes For The Gold at First Look For Charity

The Winter Olympic-themed private reception greeted The Cradle's guests at First Look for Charity on Febryary 7, 2014.

First Look is the tuxedo-attired benevolent event of the Chicago Auto Show, the evening before it opens its 10-day public run. Proceeds benefit 18 Chicago area charities, including The Cradle.

As in previous years, The Cradle threw a party-within-the-party, in a reception room one floor above McCormick Place’s main showroom. Guests enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, music, commemorative photos, a silent auction and raffle drawing to win great prizes including a 39” Vizio LED HDTV, a GoPro HERO3 camera, and much more! They also had a chance to preview the 106th edition of North America’s largest auto show, with vehicles occupying more than one million square feet of the McCormick Place complex.
