Yellow Umbrella Party: An Amy Krouse Rosenthal Foundation Benefit
October 8 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The second annual Yellow Umbrella Party: An Amy Krouse Rosenthal Benefit will be held on Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020, 6:30-10 p.m., at the Park West in Chicago, Illinois. While the main focus of the night is fundraising for the causes that the AKR Foundation champions — the early detection of ovarian cancer and child literacy — the event also celebrates Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s work as well as her characteristic spontaneity, creativity, and sense of wonder. The evening will include the magic of Dennis Watkins, Poems While You Wait, music, readings, a live auction, raffle, buffet dinner, an open bar, and more surprises. Our 2020 Foundation benefit promises to be an inspiring night of philanthropy for two important causes, and a joyous celebration of Amy’s extraordinary life.
