Dirty_Dancing_posterMaking its American premier in Chicago, this 4 star show has been expanded from the original movie story for the stage. Champion was excited to host a show proclaimed by The Observer in London as “the biggest live theatre sensation of all time!”

As our 2nd Chicago Night at the Theatre, we couldn’t have been happier with the turnout of 300 guests at the pre-show VIP reception held at the W Hotel and the show itself that had our guests dancing in their seats. Former Chicago Bear All-World Defensive End, Richard Dent, helped kick the evening off by joining Harris and Ronnie on the reception stage. With the event proceeds, Champion focused our grant-making on brain tumor efforts at UCSF and the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University.

We’d like to thank the following sponsors for helping make this Night at the Theatre another rousing success:

Citadel Group Foundation, Anonymous, PEAK6 Investments LP, Chicago Board Options Exchange, NASDAQ, JMP Securities, and Grosvenor Capital Management.
