Canine Cruise Chicago: a Benefit for the AKC Museum of the Dog
This event will be held in conjunction with the International Kennel Club of Chicago's Great American Dog Show and AKC Meet the Breeds.
Friday, August 25
Launching from McCormick Place, Chicago, IL
Join the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog for a festive night on board the Spirit of Chicago as we enjoy cocktails, a buffet-style dinner, silent auction, and dancing while admiring the Chicago skyline from the waters of Lake Michigan.
After boarding at McCormick Place, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy dockside cocktails from the cash bar before embarking on a two-hour cruise with spectacular sunset views from climate-controlled interior and exterior decks. DJ entertainment will serenade guests during dinner before dancing the night away and placing bids at our art-inspired silent auction with works by Yvonne Sovereign, Karrie Dollar, and more.
All proceeds from this special evening will benefit the AKC Museum of the Dog in New York City and enable the Museum to continue to care for the canine art in its collection, provide educational programming for the public, and inspire positive engagement with dogs year-round.
