More than 200 guests kicked off the season at the Mad Hatter-themed Summer Young Professionals Fundraiser June 16. Set at Chez (247 E. Ontario), the bash saw a liquor tasting by Mesh & Bone, live music by Chicago Funk Media and “Alice in Wonderland”-inspired decor. The party raised a record breaking $65,000 for the Children’s Place Association, which works to transform the lives of children in need.
Get this: Children’s Place has been around since 1991, helping children in Chicago affected by health issues like cancer, epilepsy, heart conditions and HIV/AIDS. For more information, visit Childrens-place.org.
