An evening of giving and beautiful artwork attracted guests from along the North Shore to Lake Forest’s Market Square for a preview party featuring the work of Susan Lawson Bouma. With large abstract paintings on display and plentiful champagne and Maine lobster, fans took advantage of the opportunity to purchase their favorite piece before the public showing, with half of all purchases dedicated to the University of Chicago Cancer Research Foundation. A generous $12,500 was donated after the two-day event. susanbouma.com
