On March 2 beginning at 6:30 p.m. more than 200 guests including alumni, board members, school leadership, and community members, will gather at the Evanston Art Center to celebrate decades of friendship and philanthropy to support Baker Demonstration School and its benefit theme: Creative Innovation.

The Baker Benefit raises more than $100,000 annually to support the school’s critical needs. This year’s proceeds will directly support the school’s work to inspire creativity and innovation in students.  Local band Part Time Lovers will provide entertainment at the event.
