Sometimes having a good time for a good cause is a great way to help give back, plus everyone needs some time to unwind. So, I thought I would share a couple February events in Chicago for you to check out. I received an invite for a benefit party for one of my favorite charities, Chicago Food Depository. Billy Dec is celebrating the 2 year anniversary of his blog, aChicagothing.com, and he’s throwing a party with 100% of proceeds are going to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. That’s pretty cool! The party is this Thursday, Feb. 3rd at Rockit Bar & Grill on Hubbard. You can purchase tickets here.
Billy and I have something in common, we like to celebrate anniversaries and help people at the same time. My 29th birthday is February 22nd and to celebrate I am planning a birthday benefit at Viaduct Theatre (3111 N. Western Ave) on February 26th from 10:30pm-3:00am. All proceeds from this event will benefit LiveStrong.org in dedication to the three wonderful souls that I lost in 2010. There is an amazing musical lineup including Photo.Sans.Nom, The Flavor Savers, Ghosthouse, a surprise special guest and a raucous DJ set by Team Bayside High. There will also be a Live Photo Booth by Benjamin Chandler and Cancer Sucks Swag! This event will be 21 and over & space will be limited. Tickets are on-sale now. In the meantime you can view the facebook event here.
Save the dates and help a good cause by having a good time!
