Art With Heart

| November 30, 2015 | Parties National

THE PARTY More than 120 guests joined Chicago Bears all-pro Matt Forte and wife Danielle at a private location for Chicago Paints the World celebrity art auction, where they bid on one-of-a-kind works and show their support of the What’s Your Forte Foundation and World Sport Chicago. THE PEOPLE Olympian Aja Evans, Chicago P.D. actor LaRoyce Hawkins and Giuliana Rancic were among the celebrity artists who attended and displayed their work. CBS 2 Sports anchor Ryan Baker served as emcee, and for the pièce de résistance, Elliott From of Artbeat Live wowed guests with three live paintings. THE PINNACLE Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett took over the mic during the live auction and encouraged the enthusiastic bunch of art aficionados to bid high. By the end of the evening, $30,000 was raised for at-risk youth in Chicago’s under-resourced neighborhoods. Talk about a touchdown! –Photos by Michael Patton and Marlon Taylor
