The Edward Foundation's 31st annual gala, "The Big Gig: Parisian Soiree," has been rescheduled for Thursday, Dec. 2, at the Westin Lombard, 70 Yorktown Center in Lombard.

The event was originally scheduled to be held Sept. 25, but was postponed due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.


The event will begin at 6 p.m. with cocktails and silent auction, followed by dinner and a live auction.

The gala is the foundation's largest fundraiser of the year and supports Edward Hospital programs and services that directly impact patients.

A portion of event funds raised this year will help fund strategic upgrades across numerous Edward Hospital specialties, including neurosciences, radiology, pathology and behavioral health services at Linden Oaks.

A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available, tables of ten or individual tickets can be purchased, and individuals and businesses can donate items for the silent and live auctions.

In addition, the gala will feature an "Ultimate Raffle" ($100 for one ticket, $200 for three tickets).

The winner will choose one of the following: $2,500 in cash, a Peloton Bike+ or vacation packages for two in Sonoma, California or Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
