‘Tis the season to be with family and on December 8the Women’s Board of The Joffrey Ballet stepped in to offer 575 guests (aged 5-75) a chance to partake in their 16th annual Nutcracker Family Dinner. The enchanting experience began with a riveting matinee performance of “The Nutcracker” at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. From there, festive trollies carried guests to a grand family feast inside the Standard Club but not before they ate dessert and played at the countless activity stations that ranged from candy cupcake decorating to a rock candy nail salon. The event raised more than $140,000 for Joffrey programming. See: joffrey.org.
