Be inspired – and excited! Auction items await you at gala honoring nurses Saturday



We look forward to seeing many of you Saturday at our fourth annual From the Heart Gala as we honor the integral role nurses play in keeping our communities healthy.  We’ve assembled a collection of unique experiences, travel opportunities — and of course Hamilton tickets — for you to bid on. 

As a reminder, here are the details: 

Venue West | 221 North Paulina Street | Chicago, Illinois 60612

Still need a ticket?  A few remain available, all the details are here.  Here are some of the items that winners will take home with them:

Plus, there will be a silent auction thanks to support from the communities we serve. We are grateful to local community business including Bentley’s Pet Stuff, Big Shoulders Coffee, Jeff Tweedy, Joseph Kraft, Move-Tastic Moving Company, Peet’s Coffee, Pinot’s Palette, Royal Palms Shuffleboard Chicago and to those generous individuals who graciously donated Chicago Cubs and White Sox tickets among many others. 

We look forward to seeing you and celebrating with our honored guests, U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood, Rush University College of Nursing Professor Kathy Delaney, and VNA Foundation.  Please let us know if you have any questions by contacting development director Amanda Solon at
