Joffrey Ballet 16th Annual Spring Gala
The Joffrey Ballet along with more than 700 of the Company’s supporters gathered
at the 16th annual Gala in celebration of Ashley Wheater’s 10th anniversary as
Artistic Director of the Joffrey.
Guests were treated to a one-night-only, hour long performance by the Joffrey’s
Company dancers which featured pieces hand selected by Wheater.
Following the performance, guests were taken by trolley to The Palmer House
Hilton for an evening filled with cocktails, dinner and, of course, dancing. The meal
was crafted by The Palmer House Hilton and was inspired by traditional Swedish
Midsummer fare in honor of the North American premiere of Midsummer Night’s
Dream, running April 25th through May 6th.
The 2018 Gala was sponsored by BMO Wealth Management and hosted by Gala
chair Susan Oleari with the support of the Joffrey’s Women’s Board committee
chair, Kathleen Klaser, Women’s Board President Patti S. Eylar and the host
This signature event raises funds for the Joffrey’s operations and programming,
including its Community Engagement programs. The proceeds from the event
provide students of all ages the opportunity to foster creativity and confidence
through the art of dance.
