Event Background

Green Tie Ball, presented by Wintrust is Chicago Gateway Green’s signature fundraising event. The famous gala, returning each year with a new and engaging theme, raises funds for Chicago Gateway Green’s Expressway Partnership Program, which creates and maintains beautiful, sustainable landscapes along Chicago’s major expressways thereby reducing air and noise pollution and adorning the gateways into the city’s communities.

It was first held in 1992 as a 500-person street party and is now one of the best-known charity events in Chicago. The gala attracts Chicago’s most prominent public, political, and media figures, environmental supporters as well as young professionals and local celebrities.

About Chicago Gateway Green
Celebrating its 32nd Anniversary in 2018, we are dedicated to greening and beautifying Chicago's expressways, gateways, and neighborhoods, Chicago Gateway Green was founded in 1986 to benefit the environment and improve the quality of life for millions of Chicagoland residents and annual visitors.

A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Gateway Green makes an impact in the community with three key initiatives: the Expressway Partnership Program that transforms city roadways into landscaped parkways by maintaining over 100 gardens along Chicago’s major expressways, thereby reducing air and noise pollution; the International Sculpture Program that beautifies gateways through the installation of permanent, international art; and the Tree Partnership Program that transforms vacant land into tree-filled green spaces through large-scale volunteer tree plantings. Over the past 30 years, Gateway Green and their valued partners have helped to improve both the local environment and the quality of life for millions of Chicagoland residents and visitors.
