LAKE FOREST – Lake Forest was popping on Saturday evening, February 10 — quite literally, when champagne bottles were opened and fireworks were set off to start a three-day series of community events showcasing the new state-of-the-art Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital.
A total of 700 people attended the gala, held at the hospital and hosted by the hospital’s Women’s Board. The event was chaired by Women’s Board members Denise Bunning and Holli Volkert, and raised $1.4 million, making it the most successful fundraising event in Lake Forest history.
Guests gathered in the hospital’s stunning rotunda and were treated to a fireworks display followed by dinner and dancing in a winterized tent on the hospital’s property.
All proceeds from the event support the Women’s Board’s $4 million pledge to the new facility.
