Comedian Patti Vasquez Headlines
Often on WGN Radio and TV, Patti Vasquez also performs her stand-up comedy internationally. As a radio host, Patti quickly claimed the number one spot for late night radio. This wildly successful Chicagoan also has a big heart for healthcare. In 2014, Patti created a company called “With Kind Words” in which she encourages healthcare providers to consider the emotional readiness of every team member.
Comedian Paul Farahvar Emcees
Paul Farahvar will entertain guests throughout the evening with his quick wit and self-deprecating dry humor. Paul regularly performs throughout the nation, including Laugh Factory in Chicago, Las Vegas and Hollywood. You may have also heard him on “Singles Only," and “2 Guys 1 Album,” podcasts or seen him on TV in a 2017 Chicago Med episode.
Dr. Tony Altimari & The Vital Signs Perform
Central DuPage Hospital’s own Dr. Tony Altimari and his band The Vital Signs will keep our hearts pumping and toes tapping with live music. This award-winning surgeon and his band mates will play classic rock and roll throughout the evening.
