This one of a kind gala is built from the ground up to be welcoming to all ages, while keeping the formality worthy of its setting. Held in the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Chicago, the Miracle Gala is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Alexander Graham Bell Montessori & Alternatives in Education for Hard of Hearing/Deaf Individuals. The event is dedicated to our honorees where we get the chance to thank those who have made great strides in the advancement of Cued Speech and those who are staunch supporters of our school.
We are happy to have our popular entertainment return again this year: Elementals from The Seelie Players, an Expressionist Speedpainter, Elliot From, of ArtBeat Live, Magic by Jeanette Andrews, & a live performance by The Students of AGBMS. Don’t worry! The Gopho Collective will be in attendance to capture the special memories of the night and Access Chicago will make you dance until the end.
This year we are proud to honor Thomas Shull & Dr. Miriam Redleaf for their Miracle Achievements, The Midwest Furniture Club & MotrGrafx as our Supporting Angels, & our Shooting Stars - Benjamin Lachman & Aaron Rose of Cue Cognatio.
