WOMEN LEADERS TO CELEBRATE HUBBARD STREET DANCE CHICAGO
by Hedy Weiss
Women leaders in business, entrepreneurship, arts administration and law will gather March 14 in support of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, this city's internationally acclaimed contemporary dance company.
The event -- the 10th annual benefit dubbed "Bold Moves for Bold Women " -- will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Baker & McKenzie, LLP , 300 E. Randolph ( Suite 5000). And it will serve as the kickoff of the company's Spring Series at the Harris Theater, featuring a world premiere shared program and collaboration between Hubbard Street and the California-based Alonzo King LINES Ballet.
Among the honorary members of the "Bold Moves for Bold Women" benefit are Nan Giordano (Giordano Dance Chicago), Melissa Thodos Johnston (Thodos Dance Chicago), Gail Kalver (River North Dance Chicago), Kathryn M. Lipuma (Writer's Theatre), Lynn Osmond (Chicago Architecture Foundation), Deborah F. Rutter (Chicago Symphony Orchestra), Sophia Siskel (The Arts Club of Chicago) and Regina Taylor (Goodman Theatre).
Tickets to the event at Baker & McKenzie, plus premier seating at the Harris Theater, 205 E. Randolph, are $200, plus main-floor seating $150. Event-only tickets are available for $100. Contact Jeanne T. Newman, Manager of Individual Giving and Special Events, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 312-850-9744, ext. 130. Last year's benefit raised $55,000 in support of Hubbard Street's education, community and artistic programming.
