NorthShore’s Signature Fundraising
Event Is Almost Here!

American Craft Exposition (ACE)

Mid-September is just around the corner, and with it comes the opportunity to support innovative research at NorthShore. We invite you to attend the American Craft Exposition (ACE) amid the backdrop of the Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe.

More than 140 juried artists from across the nation will display their handmade art objects for sale at the three-day event, which begins with a Benefit Preview Party on Thursday, September 14. The Exposition then runs from Friday, September 15, through Sunday, September 17.

By purchasing a ticket to the event, ACE attendees (more than 8,000 came out last year) support pharmacogenomics research, which analyzes and predicts how patients will react to medications based on their genetic makeup. This leading-edge approach to personalized medicine ensures that patients receive the right drug in the right dose at the right time.

ACE supporters will also be supporting another type of groundbreaking research in orthopaedic regenerative medicine research. The NorthShore Orthopaedic Institute is researching new materials and growth factors for cartilage, ligament and bone to enable physicians to better treat musculoskeletal injuries.

We are delighted to once again host our show at the beautiful Chicago Botanic Garden, said ACE 2017 Co-Chair Laura Koh. This year is sure to be wonderful with many returning artists, as well as new artists showcasing their magnificent work.

For ticket information and more information on the Preview Party and Exposition times, please visit americancraftexpo.org. Discounted parking and ticket packages are available through September 14.
