On behalf of the Children’s Service Board of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, thank you for making the 61st Annual Gold Coast Fashion Award Show a great success. Our September 2016 event grossed more than $900,000 for the groundbreaking Molecular Oncology and Bioinformatics Program led by Dr. Stewart Goldman.

The Children’s Service Board’s signature fundraising event, the Gold Coast Fashion Award Show, is heralded nationally among the fashion elite for its competition in which up-and-coming designers seek the coveted Gold Coast Fashion Award. Past participants have included Tory Burch, Wes Gordon, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Romona Keveza, Anne Klein, and Jason Wu.

Held each Fall, the fashion show welcomes nearly 1,000 guests to celebrate and support the fundraising of the Children’s Service Board on behalf of Lurie Children’s. Our 2017 Gold Coast Fashion Award Show will be held on Thursday, October 12, at Revel Fulton Market. Please check back frequently for additional information.
