The Steppenwolf Auxiliary Council is set to host one of Chicago’s most anticipated spring cultural social gatherings, the 2015 Red or White Ball. The gala takes place on Friday, April 10, 2015 at 9 p.m. (with the popular VIP Reception beginning at 7:30 p.m.). Hundreds of young arts supporters will gather at Chicago’s sleek, contemporary Venue One (1034 W Randolph St) for a high-energy celebration supporting Steppenwolf’s nationally recognized arts education program, Steppenwolf for Young Adults (SYA).

One of Chicago’s signature events for the city’s most influential young professionals will begin with a VIP Reception with Steppenwolf artists and food presented by the city’s leading chefs, followed by a party with open bars, food, exciting auction and raffle packages and D.J. Matt ROAN spinning late into the night. This year’s Red or White Ball celebrates SYA’s season-long exploration of the art of revolution.

Last year’s Red or White Ball raised nearly $60,000 for Steppenwolf arts education programming. Steppenwolf for Young Adults is a comprehensive educational initiative that annually serves 15,000 students, teachers and families. The program provides access to the theater for a broad base of Chicago’s youth, ages 12 – 19, and schools throughout the Chicago metropolitan area with a strong focus on partnering with Chicago Public Schools.

Steppenwolf’s dynamic Auxiliary Council is made up of more than 100 energetic young leaders with a shared mission to support the company’s arts education program for high school students. Since its inception in 2000, the Auxiliary Council has raised nearly $1.5 million in contributions.
