Holiday shopping with a philanthropic twist? Count us in. The Oak Street Council hosts Miracles on Oak Nov. 11 — a one-day shopping event where more than 20 participating boutiques and salons will donate a minimum of 10 percent of proceeds to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. The shops will celebrate, too, with exclusive in-store experiences (think a tea party at Buccellati, an artist from Milan painting handbags live at Dolce & Gabbana, a Rolex watchmaker at Razny Jewelers and scotch tastings at Geneva Seal). Check out all the festivities HERE.
The need-to-know: Shoppers must mention “Lurie” at the time of purchase.
Hot tip: There will be discounted valet parking ($15 for 4 hours) at 1000 Lake Shore Garage (1000 N. Lake Shore) and Metropolitan Valet (41 E. Oak) when you mention “Lurie.” (Regular rates apply after 4 hours).
