On Wed., Sept. 2, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center's Women's Leadership Committee will host its annual soirée virtually.
The event will stream live from a studio with a star-studded line-up featuring a musical performance by Katie Kadan, a finalist on The Voice ( December 2019 ) and other surprise guests. Media personality and social columnist Candace Jordan will emcee.
The event also will include a special message from Holocaust survivor and Museum Board President Fritzie Fritzshall.
While the event is free, there is a recommended donation of $200 to help support the work of the museum. "With racism and antisemitism on the rise, connecting the lessons of the Holocaust to present day is more urgent than ever," said Museum CEO Susan Abrams in a statement. "While the Museum is focused on education and awareness, social events such as the Soirée are another way to work toward our mission."
Guests will have the opportunity to enter a raffle for prizes such as a Peloton high-end indoor bike and a $1,000 gift card to Chicago Cut. Tickets are $50 for one ticket, $100 for three, $200 for seven and $500 for 20.
To enter the raffle, register for the free event and/or make a donation, visit ILHolocaustMuseum.org/wlc or call 847-967-4821.
