On the evening of Saturday, November 18, the DuPage Foundation hosted its 25th Annual Benefit at the beautiful Westin Hotel at Yorktown Center in Lombard. The French-inspired event titled “Bonne Soirée!: A Foundation Benefit and Celebration of the Arts highlighted the Foundation’s latest community initiative, Arts DuPage. It included an exquisite dinner, live and silent auctions, live performances, dancing, French Riviera-style charitable gaming, and other surprises. 

Thanks to the generous support of our wonderful sponsors, donors and other partners, we are pleased to share that we generated more than $355,000 in net income for Foundation operations and activities from the Benefit including nearly $85,000 from our paddle raise to start a permanent endowment for Arts DuPage. Thank you again to all who attended and supported us!
