Thursday, September 26

On September 26, House Board Member Peter Sagal, host of the popular weekly news quiz on National Public Radio, welcomes The House’s supporters to a taping of Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!

 

Before the show, we'll all gather for cocktails and bites at one of the Michelin Guide's Top Ten French Restaurants in Chicago, Cochon Volant. You'll have the chance to donate and be entered to win:

  • Peter's voice as your voicemail message (just like contestants on the show!)
  • Your name as part of "Bluff the Listener" on an episode of Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!
  • 2015 Carte Blanche Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Chef's Table dinner with Artistic Director, Nathan Allen at Frontier Restaurant
  • and more!
     

Can’t attend but want a chance to win? Good news! Every $100 you donate gives you an entry for these prizes!

After the show, return to Cochon Volant to join Peter and House artists for a nightcap.
