Co-chairs Michael Caputo and Candace Jordan had guests “Seeing Stars” at The Peninsula Chicago (108 E. Superior) — with a celestial centerpiece and a floor-to-ceiling mural of past Eversight supporters — July 26 for the nonprofit’s 70th anniversary fête. Partygoers were entertained by fortune tellers and performance artist Silver Man, and fashion illustrator Rosemary Fanti sketched portraits while they enjoyed sugary treats from the Eye Candy Bar. The event raised $50,000 for sight-restoring corneal transplants for those without financial means.
