The Woman’s Club of Evanston is an inclusive, historic venue and membership organization that gives back to the community. Located in the heart of downtown Evanston, Illinois and founded more than 125 years ago, a group of visionary women formed the WCE to address pressing social issues and unmet community needs. Today the tradition of philanthropy and social empowerment continues through a membership open to anyone that identifies as a woman. By hosting private events at the Clubhouse, all the fundraising efforts from the members can go back directly to the community.
For up to 250 guests, hosting your event at the Clubhouse features amenities and equipment such as 60″ round tables, white folding garden chairs, a complimentary 5-piece china setting, wired microphone, projector, Bose speaker, and more! Through a recent renovation, the WCE is proud to have updated all washrooms on both floors to be gender neutral.
A real life testimonial:
“I’m so happy we selected the clubhouse of The Woman’s Club of Evanston as our venue for our wedding and reception. The space provided separate spaces for our cocktail hour, ceremony and reception, with a stage for our band, which is what attracted us in the first place. I love the history and the architectural beauty of the Clubhouse, which provides a beautiful backdrop to your wedding photos. And when my wife and I understood that our rental fees enable The Woman’s Club of Evanston to focus on charitable giving in the community, we ended up being very proud to have selected this as our venue.” -Michelle, married on 1/12/20
