Fun times, fast cars, phenomenal auctions, fabulous foods. Yes, the Maxtravaganza is set for June 16, 2012 at Lake Forest Sportscars with a performance by Second City Improv All Stars. Graze our substantial tasting menu, sip specialty cocktails, and laugh out loud at Second City's Improv All Stars. The event is open to the public and Maxtravaganza tickets are $60 per person.

All proceeds directly benefit The Max Schewitz Foundation which works to prevent sudden cardiac death (SCD) in young people by providing free ECG screenings at north suburban Chicago schools. The Foundation has screened nearly 28,000 students and identified 492 students with abnormal results that required further evaluation.
