Haven’t had a chance to take that summer vacation yet? Don’t worry – Sierra Club has you covered!
Join us for our Annual Fundraiser at Ravinia on August 19th and we will sweep you away to an entirely different world!
This year’s event features a screening of the film The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring, with a live performance of the movie score by the world renowned Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Largely shot on location in New Zealand, the film makes use of that country’s unique natural features to bring J.R.R. Tolkein’s Middle Earth to life. Tolkein’s story has been interpreted as a commentary on the destruction caused to the natural environment by industrialization. Hear what other like-minded Sierra Club members have to say over a delicious dinner and drinks prior to the movie, and then find out for yourself as the CSO and Ravinia take you on a trip you’ll never forget!
Tickets are $75 per person. Reserve your spot today!

Do you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, or do you long to spend some time outdoors now that Spring is finally upon us? If so, we welcome you to join Sierra Club members Connie and Michael Schmidt at their Twin Star Ranch for Party on the Farm! – an event to benefit the Sierra Club Illinois Chapter PAC.
The money raised from this event will be used to elect pro-environment candidates that reflect Sierra Club’s commitment to clean air, clean water, and preserving our state’s unique natural places. We have a busy year ahead of us in Springfield, and need to muster as much support as we can if we want to see our legislation land on Gov. Quinn’s desk.
Between musical performances from The Almost Brothers Band and song writer and acoustic guitarist Michael Schmidt, and the horses, chickens, bunnies and dogs that Connie has graciously agreed to allow her guests with visit with, this event is sure to please the whole family. Soft drinks will be provided, but guests are invited to bring additional refreshments and a dish to share.
You can RSVP for this event here.
