Ravinia Women's Board Host
The Largest Gala to Date
Raising $1.7 million


The Women's board of Ravinia hosted the festival's annual Gala Benefit Evening on Saturday, August 4, 2007. Placido Domingo, known to the world as one of the Three Tenors, Grammy winner soprano Ana Maria Martinez and conductor and Ravinia Festival Music Director James Conlon along with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra headlined the Gala performance which featured a mix of music theater, zarzuela selections and opera arias by such composers as Verdi, Wagner, Bernstein and Sorozabal.

This special black-tie event began with signature cocktails including champagne sangria an traditional red wine sangria and hors d'oeuvres passed on Spanish-themed porcelain platters on the north lawn. The concert was sponsored by the Port, Washlow and Errant Families and Howard A. Stotler. There were approximately 1,260 guests in attendance at the sold-out Gala dinner, and the evening, the only performance fund-raiser benefiting America's oldest not-for-profit music festival raised approximately $1.7 million.
