Lux Gala

Saturday, November 16, 2024
6:00 p.m. to Midnight
The Old Post Office, 433 W. Van Buren St., Chicago, IL 60607

lux (luks), noun: a unit of illumination 

Mercy Home’s annual fall gala celebrates the light you bring to young lives.

Returning to the spacious and exquisitely restored art deco interior of Chicago’s Old Post Office, this upscale, black-tie-optional gala is a one-of-a-kind feast for the senses.

Surround yourself with spectacle as you journey through several rooms of the historic venue. Delight in free-roaming and staged performances by magicians, mentalists, acrobats, musicians and more. Enjoy a high-end two course dinner and interactive food and beverage stations. Play to win at Lux’s racing simulators, pool tables, charitable gaming casino, jewelry raffle, and our big cash raffle featuring a $25,000 grand prize!

And to make sure you don’t go home empty-handed, you can also bid on live and silent auction items that are hard to get anywhere else, including travel packages, exquisite jewelry, rare sports memorabilia, fine wines and spirits, and more.

Best of all, by joining us for the Lux Gala, you’ll be part of a movement to bring light and hope to children and families throughout Chicago.

For 137 years, Mercy Home has been a beacon for kids struggling with adversities like abuse, neglect, violence, and more.

Want a glimpse of what you can expect? Watch this highlight reel or check out these photos from our inaugural Lux Gala last November.

Be with us on November 16, 2024 and help create brighter futures for kids. And be sure to check back soon for updates on auction items and more.
