Gildapalooza funds cancer support for Gilda's Club Chicago

The ninth annual Gildapalooza was held July 7 at the Columbia Yacht Club to benefit Gilda's Club Chicago, a nonprofit support community for anyone affected by a cancer diagnosis. More than 230 guests boarded the former ice-cutter, permanently anchored at Randolph Street, for a night of dancing, dining and live entertainment.

Gilda's Club was founded in 1995 in New York by actor Gene Wilder in honor of his late wife, Gilda Radner, an original "Saturday Night Live" cast member who passed away from ovarian cancer.
