August 21, 2008 – The American Craft Exposition (ACE) Benefit Preview Party kicked off the 3-day fine craft show that brought together 150 artisans to exhibit their one-of-a-kind, museum-quality work. The Benefit Preview Party provided patrons the opportunity to see and purchase unique works of art before the Exposition became open to the public. An elegant party with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, the Benefit offered guests an intimate setting to discuss works with artists. ACE took place at the Henry Crown Sports Pavilion in Evanston and benefited breast and ovarian cancer research at Evanston Northwestern Hospital.
