Be the first to preview the outstanding fine art in our gallery space on the second floor of the Winnetka Community House, and be amazed by floral interpretations of selected artwork, Art-in-Bloom, by renowned local garden club arrangers and florists in Room 211. Enjoy a fabulous light supper and open bar, and peruse the many silent auction tables. Highlights of our Silent Auction include sports, theater and symphony tickets, a Chicago architectural tour, gift certificates from local businesses, and quality art-related items.
