The Underground Chicago
56 West Illinois
Chicago, Illinois

03/13/2015
8:00 pm - 11:00 pm



Hosted by Marcus Riley and Tsi-Tsi-Ki Felix



Join us on March 13 for the 2nd annual Pink and Green Pre-Spring Fling benefiting A Silver Lining Foundation. Founded in 2002 by Dr. Sandy Goldberg, the foundations mission is to ensure that socioeconomic status does not affect an individuals ability to obtain information, timely cancer screening and diagnosis. The Pre-Spring Fling supports the foundations free mammography program, and this year our aim is to expand on the 2014 event, which funded 74 mammograms.

Join our hosts, media personalities Marcus Riley and Tsi-Tsi-Ki Felix, in raising money for a great cause by donning your finest pink and green apparel. Of course, the pink represents breast cancer, and it wouldnt be Chicago if we weren't celebrating St. Patricks Day the very next week!

Your ticket includes a VIP Cocktail Reception* and passed desserts (*Limit 4 per guest 8pm-10pm). Win round-trip plane tickets from United Airlines during the popular Heads or Tails raffle, and the best-dressed lady and gentleman will win a prize pack courtesy of Leah Chavie Skincare and The Tie Bar.

Gather your friends and grab a table -- it's a better deal and they will go fast. See you March 13!

Chicagoans of the Year 2013: Sandy Goldberg

Imagine waking up one morning to discover a lump in your breast. And not having any money, let alone health insurance. What do you do?

If you live in or near Chicago, you can call the local foundation A Silver Lining (312-345-1322).
