WINGS Purple Tie Ball

October 1, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 11:59 pm


The Westin Hotel or from the location of your choosing
400 Park Blvd, Itasca, IL 60143

Raise a glass with us (from the location of your choosing) as we commemorate Domestic Violence Awareness Month and celebrate our survivors who are now hopeful, free and thriving.

We look forward to gathering safely and in-person at this year’s 22nd Annual Hybrid Purple Tie Ball. This year’s hybrid event format promises a unique opportunity to come together in-person at the Westin Hotel  or join virtually from anywhere. We will have great music by Maggie Speaks, one of a kind live auction items, a powerful impact auction, and a roaring 20’s theme filled with surprises! And we will continue our tradition of honoring an outstanding WINGS graduate with the David K. Hill Award.

We look forward to being together in-person and virtually!
