Associates Host Music Matters Party for REACH*TEACH*PLAY Education Programs

Ravinia Associates, the festival’s forward-looking board of young business leaders, will host its annual Music Matters party to benefit Ravinia’s REACH*TEACH*PLAY education programs at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, May 4, at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel in Chicago. The black-tie event features a live auction (with electronic bidding paddles) for sporting events, vacation packages and premium Ravinia tickets. The event will also honor Ravinia Life Trustees Harrison and Lois Steans for 40 years of dedicated service. Ravinia reaches about 75,000 people each year through its education programs, which include student orchestras built on the “El Sistema” model. Those unable to attend can still make a donation to our REACH*TEACH*PLAY programs, and have it matched as part of the Music Matters Challenge, sponsored by Evergreen Real Estate Services.
