"Not Your Grandmother's BINGO" Fundraiser

Last Wednesday night I had the pleasure of hosting "Not Your Grandmother's BINGO" at PUBLIC Hotel benefitting The American Association for the Study of Liver Disease. As you can imagine, the title for this soiree was nailed right on the head as the evening included numerous types of adult beverages, swanky house tunes (my personal #fave), and unbelievable prizes for our winners that made this event unlike any other BINGO night I have ever even heard of! 

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support such a great cause and for helping us raise over $1,000! Stay tuned for information on the next FUNdraiser I will be hosting and check out some photos of our winners, beautiful party guests, and of course, some of my dearest friends :)



Let's get ready to BINGOOOOOOOO!

Macy's GLAMORAMA

I had the pleasure of attending Macy's GLAMORAMA VIP Media Preview event for an exclusive look at the performers, acts, and fashion segments before the event kicked off on Friday, August 9th at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance. For those of you not familiar with this stellar Annual event, it includes a fashion extravaganza and musical performances (this year consisting of The Summer Set & record producer/musician, Sheryl Crow) benefiting the Ronald McDonald House charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana. The amount of emotion, curation, and astronomical efforts that go into this event is bewildering and I simply cannot wait to see what next year's show brings!


The heavyhearted, unbelievable story about a Chicago family's struggle, recovery, and miracle thanks to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Southwest Indiana.
