In its ongoing effort to support arts, music and culture, Celebrate Highwood is hosting its next philanthropic fundraiser, Jazzed Up Dining & Classical Cocktails on Saturday, February 18th at 6:30 p.m., to benefit Midwest Young Artists Conservatory (MYAC), the Midwest’s most comprehensive youth music school and ensemble program.
In addition to live jazz, classical and big band musical performances by MYAC students throughout the evening, guests will enjoy appetizers, dinner and dessert from the North Shore’s finest restaurants, as well as an open bar and a silent auction. Guests will also have the unique opportunity to tour MYAC’s rehearsal facility at 878 Lyster Road in Highwood, a beautifully transformed army stockade building at Fort Sheridan, to learn about history of the building and explore the old prison cells from 1890.
“Celebrate Highwood is looking forward to promoting the arts and bringing people together through our mission of raising funds for worthy non-profit organizations with an extensive lineup of family friendly festivals and events throughout the year,” says Eric Falberg, City of Highwood Alderman.
Tickets to Jazzed Up Dining & Classical Cocktails are $75 per person and can be purchased online at www.celebratehighwood.com.
