The Goldie Gala ranks as one of the Chicago commercial real estate industry’s most high-profile, most well-attended events. In 2022, the group hit its $1 million fundraising goal. More than 750 guests – Goldie Scholars, stakeholders, sponsors and team members – enjoyed the annual Goldie Gala, held in person for the first time since 2019.

Chicago’s glittering skyline as seen from Offshore Rooftop at Navy Pier – the nation’s largest rooftop venue – was the backdrop for the gala. A rich navy and gold palette set a sophisticated tone for an event of celebration. Décor featured luscious touches such as illuminated marquee letters welcoming guests, gold bezel panels featuring sponsor logos, dramatic drapery and a decorative suspended panel at the entrance, branded pillows and more.

Guests enjoyed passed appetizers, a variety of food stations, and sweets later in the evening.

Icon and trailblazer Goldie B. Wolfe Miller started The Goldie Initiative with a mission to redefine the commercial real estate industry by elevating and advancing the careers of women with high potential.
