“Chicago Fire” star Monica Raymund and Lookingglass ensemble member Phil Smith took the stage to perform comedy acts and musical numbers as co-hosts of this vaudeville-themed affair. Held at Revel Fulton Market (1215 W. Fulton) April 2, the event honored Shawn M. Donnelley, president of philanthropic consulting firm Strategic Giving, and Ira Glass, “This American Life” radio host, with the Civic Engagement Awards.
