Chicago History Museum, Saturday, March 7th—Several hundred attendees will fill the Chicago History Museum this Saturday night for the 7th Annual Lunar Ball, the largest Asian-American charitable fundraiser in Chicagoland. The Lunar Ball host committee invites all Chicago and Illinois community members to attend. Tickets are available at http://lunarball.org.
All proceeds from Lunar Ball 2015 will benefit charities including community beneficiary Project: VISION, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides youth in Chicago’s Bridgeport and Chinatown communities with tools for educational, personal, and civic development. Project: VISION’s programs have reached over 400 youths, while remaining primarily volunteer-run and free to the community. 85% of the students served by Project: VISION are from low-income families, and most will be the first in their families to attend college.
Kicking off at 7:00 PM, the Lunar Ball features tastings from Chicago’s top restaurants, a raffle and silent auction, and a host of cultural performances and entertainment, including Loreen Targos, DJ Jay Funk, Auri Kawalia, Sally Moy & Flashburn, The Lunar Heritage Ensemble, Paul Kay & Phil Myung, SoriBeat and the Thep Nimmitt Dance Troupe.
“We’re excited to bring together so many people to support local organizations doing good work in the community,” said Hauwei Lien, Lunar Ball 2015 Event Chair. “This is our seventh year and we’ve been thrilled to see our attendee numbers grow year after year.”
Lunar Ball 2015 is supported by presenting sponsor Morgan Stanley as well as Constellation Brands, McDonald’s, Trust Air Cargo, and over 30 other sponsors.

About Project: VISION. Project: VISION was an idea conceived by a group of young professionals, students, and volunteers who saw a need for community youth to have a place to call their own. In Fall 2004, with the help of a few volunteers and borrowed space from the Chicago Public Library and Valentine Boys and Girls Club in Bridgeport, Project: VISION piloted its first tutoring program. http://www.projectvisionchicago.org/
