Buy Tickets Now: June 20, 2015 Maxtravaganza at Lake Forest Sportscars, presented by NorthShore University HealthSystem Cardiovascular Institute. 

The Maxtravaganza is the Max Schewitz Foundation's only fundraiser and it is held at the incomparable Lake Forest Sportscars, home to incredible sports cars made by Ferrari, Maserati, Lotus, Aston Martin, McLaren and more. Have fun sipping cocktails, posing for a souvenir photo in a hot sports car, dining on delicious favorites prepared by Belvedere Catering, and browsing our auction items. You'll have an opportunity to meet some of the young adults whose lives have been changed by our cardiac screenings, as well as to play in our heads and tails game for a chance to win boxed lunch for 25 from the Vernon Hills Chick-fil-A delivered to your local home or business. Dress is summer business casual, so no need to get supper dressy.  We hope you can attend or support our work through a donation. Tickets are $75 each and include cocktails, dinner, access to our auctions, raffle and heads and tails game, all amidst sports cars. Click here to be taken to the registration page
