Chicago Cultural Center, Preston Bradley Hall

78 E Washington St, Chicago, IL 60602

The Chicago Cultural Center was completed in 1897 as Chicago’s first central public library. In 1991, the building was established as the Chicago Cultural Center by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, the nation's first and most comprehensive free municipal cultural venue.

The building is home to two magnificent stained-glass domes. Evening2Inspire will take place in the Preston Bradley Hall where the largest glass Tiffany dome ― 38 feet in diameter with some 30,000 pieces of glass ― hovers high overhead.

Thank you for an amazing 2017 Evening2Inspire!

What a wonderful night! We ate, we drank, and we celebrated, but most importantly we got inspired by the amazing accomplishments of Dare2tri athletes. Thank you to those who joined us at the 2017 Evening2Inspire. You all made it an incredible night. We’re excited about what’s next for the Dare2tri community.

The finish line is just the beginning!

At Dare2tri, we believe that by being active, athletes build confidence, autonomy, and self-worth that carries over to all aspects of their lives. We empower athletes to believe they can do anything they set their mind to. We believe the finish line is just the beginning!
