The Woman’s Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital and M.K. Pritzker helped raise millions at the Evergreen Invitational.
More than 600 guests ascended upon M.K. and J.B. Pritzker’s 230-acre Evergreen farm in beautiful Bristol, Wis. The Woman’s Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital and M.K. Pritzker hosted the sixth Evergreen Invitational in support of women’s health initiatives.
Meredith Wood-Prince and Elizabeth A. Coleman co-chaired the invitation-only equestrian Grand Prix show, jumping competition and luncheon. Nationally ranked professional and amateur riders competed for a share of the lucrative purse. Guests sipped farm-to-table Bloody Marys and shopped at pop-up boutique tents, while fans of heavier horsepower test-drove Ferraris from Lake Forest Sportscars.
The event generated $1.4 million in sponsorships and commitments for women’s health intiatives, bringing the total to more than $6 million since the biannual event began in 2007. This equestrian day has continually jumped the fences, and it seemed poised to keep galloping along for years to come. ‒Ben Rains
