The Arts of Life Associate Board will be hosting its third annual OscArts of Life Fundraiser. You can come dressed up or dressed down — but new this year is a contest for “Best Dressed” and “Best Movie-Themed Costume.” Winners receive a trophy made by the artists of The Arts of Life along with a $50 gift certificate towards buying one-of-a-kind artwork.
Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the Oscars this year, guaranteeing a night full of laughs. Appropriately, we will be hosting this event at @North Bar, which is home to many of Chicago’s best comedy shows (www.liveatnorthbar.com). @North Bar has graciously agreed to donate 15% of the night’s earnings to The Arts of Life and to forward any “live music” tip that you include on your credit card receipt. Have a cocktail or four – it’s helping a nonprofit 501(c)3!
Bonus this year: The first 20 people to buy an early-bird ticket online (includes a ballot) will receive a complimentary drink/beer ticket!
When: Sunday, February 26, 2017, 6 -11 p.m. (Oscars start at 7:30 p.m.)
Where: @North Bar in Wicker Park, 1637 W North Ave, Chicago, IL 60622
