We are excited to honor founding ChiArts Board Members, Jim and Kay Mabie, for their steadfast support and dedication to the Chicago High School for the Arts, as well as their generous $1 million gift to support the creation of ChiArts Foundation. In lieu of our annual gala, we are hosting a brief virtual event on May 19th and sponsors will be invited to join us for an in-person event in Fall 2021, pending city guidelines.
ABOUT THE HONOREES
Jim and Kay Mabie are longtime supporters and enthusiasts of Chicago’s thriving arts community. The Mabies played an integral role in the creation of the Chicago Highschool for the Arts and helped navigate the complicated processes of Chicago Public Schools, instilled a supportive and involved board culture, and led fundraising efforts to support equitable, tuition-free arts education. Their leadership, passion, and kindness are qualities that are deeply appreciated by the ChiArts staff and Board, and we are thrilled to celebrate them as our honorees.
ABOUT THE VIRTUAL EVENT
Join us to give a Standing Ovation to our scholar-artists for their hard work, creativity, and accomplishments this year, to the tireless dedication of our teachers and staff, to Jim & Kay for their impact, and to all of our supporters. We hope this brief, virtual celebration will lift your spirits and provide a glimpse into the infinitely creative world of ChiArts’ scholar-artists.
Funds raised through this event will help ensure the next generation of diverse, talented artists can continue to experience ChiArts Dance, Creative Writing, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts conservatories.
All donations and sponsorships include an e-vite to the virtual event on May 19th. A Zoom link will be sent prior to the night of the event.
