PRIVATE SCREENING OF RBG MOVIE
MONDAY, MAY 7
7:20 PM: Movie

Join us for a private screening of the new RBG movie to benefit Cause the Effect Chicago. 

About the movie: At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg 's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films. WATCH TRAILER

SECOND CITY'S "SHE THE PEOPLE" 
THURSDAY, MARCH 15
7 PM: Networking
8 PM: Show  

Join us for a private performance of "SHE THE PEOPLE: GIRLFRIENDS' GUIDE TO SISTERS DOING IT FOR THEMSELVES" to benefit Cause the Effect Chicago. 

About the show: We’ll bet you 72 cents on the dollar (or much, much less!) you’ll cheer for this sketch show entirely created, designed, and performed by the fearlessly funny women of The Second City! This mimosa-and-madness-fueled foray roasts the patriarchy, taking on everything from having it all…to having that sick feeling your government is trying to send you back to the Middle Ages. It’s time for women everywhere to collectively reclaim comedy!
