Relevé Soirée

Event Description

Please join us for our third annual Relevé Soirée on Thursday, June 7, 2018, 6:00 p.m. at Joffrey Tower in Chicago. This special evening will include cocktails, a feast of delicious hors d’oeuvres, a special performance by Forward Momentum Chicago students from across the city, and a live auction.

FMC is excited to honor a significant member of Chicago’s dance community: Lester Goodman, a legendary Chicago dancer approaching his 103rd birthday. Born in 1915, Lester began dancing when he won a dance contest at the age of 7 and has had an exciting career dancing in Broadway shows, theatre and nightclubs, and performing in film and television in the United States, Canada, and Europe. We are proud of Lester’s contributions and thrilled to recognize him at this year’s event.

Proceeds from the evening will go to support Forward Momentum Chicago’s programming efforts, including our annual full-day, scholarship based Summer Dance Camp held at Englewood’s Hamilton Park.

We hope you’ll join us for what promises to be an exciting evening and help us change the lives of Chicago’s youth!

Co-chairs: Nancy Gottlieb Bauer & Sharen Berman
