About Our Auction

On behalf of the University of Michigan Club of Greater Chicago, we thank you for your support of the 2020 Go Blue Gala. The Gala attracts hundreds of University of Michigan alumni and fans who look forward to celebrating all things “Michigan” over dinner and cocktails and has historically featured notable alumni VIP guests, such as NFL star Desmond Howard and legendary NHL and NCAA hockey Hall of Famer Red Berenson.

The net proceeds that we raise at our annual Gala benefit our need-based scholarship fund for Chicagoland students seeking to attend the University of Michigan. Your support will assist us in meeting our fundraising goals for this year’s scholarships.

Thank you for your support of our future Wolverines.

Go Blue,
Michael Chropowicz and Desiree Lauricella
Co-Chairs, Go Blue Gala
