The Chicago-based orchestra provides dance music for high end social events throughout the country.
Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) April 09, 2012
Recently Glen Traeger and The Glen Traeger Orchestra performed at the KishHealth Foundation’s Formal Affair, an event geared at raising money to help the health system’s nonprofit entities: Community Cares Clinic, DeKalb County Hospice, Valley West and Kish Hospitals.
The elegant evening of fine dining and dancing took place in the Duke Ellington Ballroom, Holmes Student Center at Northern Illinois University.
“The Chicago-based orchestra provides dance music for high end social events throughout the country. They have performed at the Steve Wynn Hotel and Resort in Las Vegas and at Spago Restaurant, for corporate functions, weddings and galas,” said Marcy Rubic, KishHealth Foundation Executive Director. “We are fortunate the group had room on its schedule to come to DeKalb and be a part of our inaugural Formal Affair.”
The KishHealth Foundation supports the caring mission of KishHealth System’s not-for-profit entities by cultivating relationships to provide funds and other resources needed to enhance their community owned health system. The black-tie optional event featured cocktails and fancy hors d’oeuvres, an elegant sit-down with wine and an open bar. Tickets cost $125 and were sold starting the end of February.
Glen Traeger and his musical ensemble, the Glen Traeger Orchestra, were very enthusiastic about participating in the “special” event.
“The Glen Traeger Orchestra and I really love supporting our community and helping when we can,” said Glen Traeger.
