Fall Benefit

The 2023 Fall Benefit was held on Saturday, November 18 from 6:30 to 10:00 p.m. at the Museum of Science & Industry. Over 2,000 people joined us for a fun, casual evening of eye-opening exhibits, unique activities for kids, and an engaging silent auction. Guests enjoyed tasty comfort food, an open bar, and complimentary parking. Exhibit highlights included Christmas Around the World, Pompeii: The Exhibition, and the new Blue Paradox

Thank you so much for inviting me and my family to the CBF Fall Benefit. We had not been able to attend since 2016, and we were quickly reminded that it is one of our favorite events. It must be a huge undertaking for the CBF to plan, and you all did a great job.” – Colleen Boraca
