Join the Be Mine fundraiser for fine food, signature cocktails, unique raffles and an exciting live auction event surrounded by Tortoise Club’s collection of historic Chicago artifacts.

In the foyer, you will find the mahogany wood from the original Pump Room. There are two ballot boxes that were used for Chicago mayoral elections from the 1920s through the 1950s. Raoul Varin Prints offer a bird’s-eye view of Chicago’s landscape during the 1880s.

You will also find an 1880s pencil sketch of great Chicagoan Andrew McNally, one of the founders of the Rand McNally Atlas company.  Peek through historic books from Chicago’s Newberry Library and enjoy caricatures by artist Chuck Senties of ten scandalous or rogue individuals who had a significant impact on Chicago history.

From the Community

“Perhaps the most hurtful impact of the stigma surrounding mental illness is the common belief that women with mental illness cannot be good mothers. In a society that values ‘self-sacrificing mothers’ and rewards adherence to gender norms, we often deem that a ‘good mother’ has few needs and challenges of her own; rather, she can commit herself in her entirety to her children.

Mental illness can certainly make some aspects of motherhood more challenging, but it doesn’t disqualify those of us living with a mental health condition from being good parents. In fact, research suggests that many issues faced by mothers with mental illness are generic to all parents. While mothers with mental illness may experience more unique challenges from their symptoms, or from medication and treatment obligations, these risks can be managed with the guidance of a good collaborative care team.”
