What do samba music and Taliesin East have in common? The CAF Auxiliary Board.

Every year, the CAF Auxiliary Board throws a party on the Chicago River. But this isn’t an ordinary party. It’s a party for a great cause. Guests enjoy live music, delicious food and drinks and world-class architecture while raising support for Taliesin East apprenticeships for the winners of CAF's Newhouse Architecture and Design Competition.

Our Auxiliary Board members are dynamic, generous, committed and hardworking. They play a vital role in the success of the Chicago Architecture Foundation and manage to have some fun in the process.
