Illumination 2022 Circus of Light was an incredible record-breaking gala for The Clayco Foundation!
Through ticket purchases, sponsorships, and the generosity of various donors, we raised a record-breaking $1.1 million to help support the search for a cure for the rare genetic disease RVCL and to help pave the way for cures for all genetic orphan diseases.
Over 1,200 people gathered at Vertiport Chicago – dressed in their finest Halloween costumes – to celebrate with talented performers, explore artist installations, and even take helicopter rides around the city!
I have learned that we cannot change past circumstances, but we do have the power to change the present and future – which is exactly what Illumination does for many people who need it.
Illumination will continue to cast a light on rare diseases and make a lasting impact in rare disease communities and beyond.
Let’s break another record at the celebration next year!
