2018 Annual Benefit Gala Recap

It was the greatest show on Earth! On Saturday, October 27th, over 900 Swedish Covenant Hospital supporters, including hospital physicians and community leaders, came together at the Aon Grand Ballroom of Navy Pier to celebrate the
63rd Annual Benefit Gala, Le Cirque. The circus-themed event (complete with jugglers and acrobats) raised $930,000 for the Family Birthing Center and its programs.  Lourdes Duarte, co-anchor of the WGN Evening News, emceed the evening’s program, and Drs. Angel Rivera and Emily Rubenstein chaired the event. A highlight of the evening was honoring
Mr. Charles (Chuck) Adair with the 2018 Spirit of Compassion Award.
