First Look for Charity 2003
by Angela Harkless

Fun. Fanciful. Functional. The best way to experience the Chicago Auto Show is to attend its First Look for Charity gala.

Supporters of the annual gala can attend the Chicago Auto Show in a luxurious setting with champagne, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and special entertainment.
If that is not enough to excite you, all ticket holders have a chance to win a brand new car in a drawing. This year on February 13th, the Chicagoland Auto Dealers Association gave away a brand-new Pontiac Grand Prix!

Gala attendants also get an up-close and personal viewing of nearly 1,000 cars in an elegant atmosphere before the public show. Ever sit in a Bentley? or Rolls Royce? Take a picture while trying on a Mercedes Roadster for size. This is a treat that the one-million people who attend the ten-day public show - - - just don’t get a chance to experience.

Robin & Paul Price
The 2003 First Look for Charity gala raised 1.5 million dollars for 17 Chicago-area charities. The benefactor charities are: Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital,
ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Alzheimer’s Association, Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, Campagna Academy, Children’s Memorial Hospital, Clearbrook, The Cradle, and the Cure Autism Now Foundation, Ray Graham Association for People with Disabilities, Illinois Spina Bifida Association, Little City Foundation, March of Dimes Birth Defects Association, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Misericordia Heart of Mercy, National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the United Negro College Fund.
If you missed this year’s luxury experience, mark your calendars for 2004! First Look is always on the Thursday night before opening day of the Auto Show.
