Green Tie Ball 2017 Devil in the Green City

Green Tie Ball 2017 is Chicago Gateway Green’s signature fundraising event. The infamous gala, returning each year with a new and engaging theme, raises funds for Chicago Gateway Green’s Expressway Partnership Program, which creates and maintains beautiful, sustainable landscapes along Chicago’s major expressways thereby reducing air and noise pollution and adorning the gateways into the city’s communities.

It was first held in 1992 as a 500-person street party and is now one of the best-known charity events in Chicago. The gala attracts Chicago’s most prominent public, political, and media figures, environmental supporters as well as young professionals and local celebrities.
