The Magic Ball



You will never forget your evening at The Magic Ball. One of Chicago’s most memorable charity events – held in a venue unmatched by any other – The Magic Ball is a unique blend of fun, magic, surprise, fantastic food and entertainment – all supporting an unparalleled charity organization which provides support to children touched by a parent’s cancer.

The event, held at Chicago’s Red Moon Theater, brings hundreds of Chicago luminaries together for an evening of philanthropy, discovery and fun. Complete with a VIP reception, dinner and live auction, The Magic Ball will inspire you to support this often-overlooked population of children.

All proceeds benefit Camp Kesem and our nationwide network of free summer camps (including camps run by Northwestern University and the University of Illinois), ensuring our organization’s ability support more of the 3+ million children who have a parent with cancer, or who have lost a parent to cancer.
