This unique event in support of improving the health of the 156-mile Chicago River system for people and wildlife is a memorable night that commemorates the full promise of the river, and offers fun entertainment and civic spirit. It is an experience simply not to be missed.

With your support, Friends can expand our outstanding programs, projects, and initiatives that create systemic change. Your support enables Friends to create opportunities for people from every community across the region to benefit from and enjoy the Chicago River system, as well as making the river healthier for wildlife and contributing to a resilient landscape.

The Big Fish Ball offers multiple sponsorship levels with a wide range of recognition. Tables of 10 may be sponsored for $4,000, and individual tickets are available for $415. Our attached 2024 Big Fish Ball Sponsor Packet outlines sponsorship benefits, advertisement options, and how to purchase After-Party Cruise tickets if they are not included with your table sponsorship.
