Great Blue Benefit

Join us for our 2024 Great Blue Benefit at the Columbia Yacht Club in Chicago.

Take advantage of our Early Bird tickets now through April 30, 2024

We hope you’ll join us on Thursday, June 13, 2024, from 6 to 9 pm at the Columbia Yacht Club for the Great Blue Benefit, a celebratory evening dedicated to safeguarding our precious Great Lakes. 

Enjoy live music, cocktails, beer and wine, and a scrumptious buffet while mingling with others who share a deep passion for clean water, all against the breathtaking backdrop of Lake Michigan and the stunning Chicago skyline. 

To view some of the memorable moments from last year’s event, we have put together a photo album capturing the highlights of the event. You can view a few photos from the event below and on our Facebook page here.

We look forward to your presence at this year’s Great Blue Benefit as we strive to make an even greater impact together.

Proceeds from the Great Blue Benefit support the Alliance for the Great Lakes’ work to ensure the Great Lakes are clean, safe, and accessible for all generations.
