The Angel Songs Soiree started in 2009 as an Open House & Concert fundraising event for the Little Angels organization at the Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington Hills. Hosts Jasper and Marian Sanfilippo graciously open their home and collection to help local charities raise money, and offered this opportunity to Little Angels after Jasper’s 60th high school reunion where he reunited with a former classmate who was also a Little Angels parent.
Guests were invited to a self-guided tour of the Sanfilippo Home, which contains magnificent collections of beautifully restored antique music machines and automated musical instruments, phonographs, arcade machines, chandeliers and art glass followed by a concert on their Wurlitzer organ, which happens to be the world’s largest theater pipe organ.
This event has grown and evolved into a unique fundraiser for Marklund that now includes a gourmet dinner, entertainment and auction in the Sanfilippo Carousel Pavilion, a second building on the estate housing more of the Sanfilippo collection plus an 1890s fully restored Parisian Carousel.
