It’s that time of year again for Jeremy Piven & Billy Dec to join forces and host the best party of the year all to benefit the Piven Theatre Workshop & their new Theatre they are building!! Every year these two guys do whatever they can to help raise funds for children’s art & theater scholarships in Chicago and without exception it’s always a good time, it always brings out a fun, philanthropic crowd, celebrities, pro-athletes, media, influencers, movers & shakers… it’s the perfect opportunity to party it up for an excellent cause.
Check out this video from Jeremy & Billy on the set of Entourage inviting all to last year’s party, footage from previous year’s festivities & more! This year, the big afterparty you need to be at is at The Underground, Saturday June 23rd at 10pm (special reception 10p-11p), with just a $20 minimum donation at the door (feel free to give more!). The first event if anyone is interested btw is in Evanston at Noyes Cultural Art Center! For more information on that event, click here!

Emmy Award Winner Jeremy Piven and I made this fun little video while i was on the set of hbo’s “entourage” playing the role of one of ari gold’s agents! And it’s about how you can get on the show too! So check it out and spread the word!
As for our event this Saturday night, its always a blast! we have been hosting it together for 7 years many times joined by Piven Theatre Workshop Alums like john cusack, kate walsh, aidan quinn, and so many more…
The main event at rockit bar & grill from 6p-10p is a must for mingling w/ your hosts, enjoying all the amazing guests, drinks, hors d’oeuvres, music, fun, silent/live auction (including the “entourage” walk-on!)… and so much more! The best part is, as the video explains, it all goes to help kids excel in art & theatre!
And for the late night party crowd, the vip after party at the underground is always a blast too! It doesn’t have the whole package included above that usually sells out first, but it’s only a $20 donation at the door. (lil advice though, space limited, so plan on coming right at 9pm if want in… for table/bottle service contact firstname.lastname@example.org ).
Tickets to the main event at Rockit are $125 (but say you got my personal “rockit” password by 5p weds 6/17 and they will give you my special batch for $100 if any left- the number at Piven Theatre workshop for tix is 847.866.8049 and website is www.piventheatre.org for more info!)
