The view of Chicago’s twinkling night skyline from a boat is surpassed in classiness only by the chance to help a child in need. Today’s side deal gives you both: a charitable evening of luxury cruising that benefits Children’s Memorial Hospital. Set sail from Navy Pier on Saturday, October 24, from 7 p.m.–9 p.m. for $99, a 43% discount off the normal $175 price. The best part about this private charter cruise with complimentary music, hors d’oeuvres, and an open bar, is that it will be free of Deadliest Catch's, sea monsters, and boat snobs, and instead, it will be full of caring philanthropists like you and hors d’oeuvres from Bonsoiree.
From the moment you step onto the elegant vessel from Kanan Cruises, you’ll be greeted by a baby grand piano lounge, complete with leather couches and attractive, warm-hearted people. Before you know it, you’ll have your lake legs and will be regaling cruise companions with local sandbar lore and tales of the ill-fated steamer Ironsides. Better than meeting friends at work, a bar, or in line at the DMV, meeting new people on a charity cruise ensures that your fellow guests are all caring individuals who’ll make suitable friends for a philanthropist like you. Panoramic windows will give you breathtaking views of the skyline, and the climate-controlled decks will keep you warm on a crisp fall evening. Bonsoiree’s tantalizing creations will keep your sophisticated taste buds in their element with bold flavor combinations. The comforting fare will increase blood flow to your stomach, matching the warmth of your philanthropic heart. Music from a DJ from MaryMonica Music, in combination with wine, beer, and vodka drinks, will set your hips out on their own philanthropic mission to bring rhythm and joy to your fellow cruisers.
Founded in 1988, the Junior Council of Children’s Memorial Hospital is an organization of young professionals who are dedicated to providing quality care to all children in need, whether or not their families are able to afford it. Their fundraising efforts support pediatric, adolescent, and maternal AIDS and HIV research and care at Children’s Memorial Hospital and Research Center. Each cruiser will get one complimentary raffle ticket for the Junior Council’s raffle of gift certificates, sports paraphernalia, and more.
