On Saturday, guests from across the country gathered at The Montgomery Club for Gilda’s Club of Chicago and Erie-LaSalle Body Shop’s Red Carpet White Party. The all-white event inspired dazzling and fun outfits alike.The evening began with specialty red and white martini’s and passed appetizers to the sounds of DH Jazz Trio. Guests dined on Gibsons signature dinner buffet while browsing the premium silent auction tables, which featured amazing prizes such as Blackhawks tickets and a Chicago Staycation package. The excitement of an evening filled with live music and charitable casino gaming was further heightened by the live auctioning of an 7-night stay in a luxury villa at The Palms Costa Rica.
The event was in full swing when the Afrodisiacs, the leading 70’s tribute band in Chicago, took the stage and the dance floor became a sea of white. While some guests danced the night away, others had their eye on the casino raffle prizes and spent the evening enjoying the friendly competition of charity blackjack and roulette.
