Fundraising took center stage at the Steppenwolf Theatre’s annual gala May 4. The night started in the Downstairs Theatre, where more than 600 guests — including co-founder Gary Sinise and board chair Nora Daley — got a sneak peek at Steppenwolf’s newest production, “Head of Passes.” The party then moved to event space Blackhawk on Halsted for drinks, dinner, dancing and a live auction, which featured star-studded items like dinner with “The Good Wife” actor Josh Charles. The event helped raise $1.1 million for the Theatre’s educational and community programs.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
