Legacy's 6th Annual Autism Speaks Heroes Ball with Host Ted Brunson

Posted by Amanda Turnbull / October 28

Join us for Legacy's 6th Annual Autism Speaks Heroes Ball with Host Ted Brunson, Thursday, Nov 14th at Tavernita.

Do you wish you could do more to help the community, but you just can't find the time? Do you struggle to balance your work life and personal life? Is it hard to meet new people, get out on the town, and keep up with social events, while juggling career, family and other obligations? In 2008, Legacy teamed up with the Chicago Chapter of Autism Speaks to create a fun event that would allow our employees, friends and colleagues a chance to give back to the community, socialize, network, and most importantly raise funds and awareness for a very deserving local charity partner.

Legacy wanted to put our people, talents and resources to work for an awesome cause. We originally partnered up with Autism Speaks because a beloved Legacy employee has two kids on the autism spectrum, and the Chicago Chapter of Autism Speaks really needed and welcomed the kind of help and awareness we could bring to an entirely new audience. Legacy is an event marketing agency at our core, so we set out to create a unique event for Autism Speaks. We came up with the idea of the Autism Speaks Heroes Ball to honor local autism heroes and give them the kind of fun night out you don't get to enjoy too often when your family is struggling with autism.

The Autism Speaks Heroes Ball is a really engaging, dynamic event--it's not your typical, seated fundraiser, with a program full of speakers and videos. Our longtime emcee, TV personality Ted Brunson, and all of our guests are on their feet all night, enjoying high energy music, food, top-shelf open bar, silent auction and cool experiences like Scotch tastings, tequila samplings, photo activations and more. Most people who attend the Heroes Ball say it is one of their favorite nights of the year and definitely their top charity event, because it's so different.

This year's Autism Speaks Heroes Ball is Thursday, Nov 14th at Tavernita (151 W. Erie), from 7pm-11pm. Exclusive pre-sale tickets are just $80 now thru Thursday, October 31st. After that (and at the door) tickets are $110 each. You TOO can be a hero for autism--just purchase tickets or make a donation! This event will sell out, so buy your tickets today. Thank you!
