Preserving Our Past…Building Our Future [photos]

A big "thank you" to all of you that attended the Auditorium Theatre 2011 Gala: Preserving Our Past…Building Our Future. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

Every year, we look toward our Gala with anticipation and excitement. This year, however, we were especially thrilled to honor Harry Weese the famed Chicago architect that volunteered his services to restoring the Auditorium Theatre back to its former elegance in the 1960s.

We also saluted Sumner Sollitt, who worked alongside Mr. Weese to oversee the entire project as well as his beloved wife Brenda, who dedicated endless time and support to the Theatre for over 30 years. Their contributions have been instrumental to the Auditorium’s success, and their efforts will forever be ingrained in the future of our treasured landmark.
