Get ready to Run Wild!

On Friday, September 22, prepare to be dazzled by whimsy and wonder as Revel Decor transforms the industrial Morgan MFG. venue into Rudyard Kipling’s classic, “The Jungle Book,” for our third annual Storybook Gala. Fire breathers, belly dancers, and decadent florals will be displayed as you are transported from a pre-cocktail “safari” into a gorgeous reception inside the Indian jungle.

Join Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress and writer, Bonnie Hunt, as she charms attendee’s throughout the evening and help us celebrate longtime WFF advocate, Laura Ferris Anderson, as we honor her with the 2017 Pitch In for Excellence Award.

Following the reception, join the dazzling belly dancers as they lead you from the jungle, straight into King Louie’s temple for a Bollywood themed after-party! Who better to keep the evening going than celebrity entertainer DJ Whiteshadow, best known for producing Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” and “Artpop” albums! Premium open bars will serve signature cocktails including Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Avion Tequila, Jameson Irish Whiskey, and Beefeater Gin and enjoy delicious bites from some of Chicago’s most divine confectioneries: Swirlz Cupcakes, Garrett’s Popcorn, Gemini and more!

Don’t monkey around, get your tickets before our signature fall event sells out a third straight year!
