AIA Chicago Guess-a-Sketch 2023; Evening Cue

Guess-A-Sketch is back, bigger, and sketchier than ever! Join us for an architectural Pictionary showdown unlike any other, where honoree sketchers will take to the drawing boards to sketch iconic buildings from across the globe.

Eight sponsored teams will battle it out, deciphering sketches of architectural landmarks to beat out the other team. The pressure's on, the crowd's roaring, and the stakes are high – who will be crowned the 2024 Guess-A-Sketch Champion?

But wait, there's more! The audience isn't just watching – they're playing too! Participate in unique, interactive challenges to win fun prizes.

All sketches created during this whirlwind night will be up for grabs, with proceeds supporting the AIA Chicago Foundation's scholarships and programs. Building a brighter future, one pen stroke at a time.

Ready to sponsor a team and gain epic exposure for your company? Starting at just $2,000, you can be part of the action. Non-team sponsorships are also available, starting at $1,000. Network, have a blast, and support a good cause – it's a win-win-win!
