Allstate and Free The Children throw a star-studded kickoff party for an empowering charitable day.

The stars aligned at the Kenmare Lofts at a kickoff party for We Day, an intense, high-energy night of celebration that’s also the launch to a yearlong series of actions that serve many communities in need. Allstate and Free The Children hosted the reception that feted the first-ever We Day Illinois, which champions the voice of younger generations within the philanthropic community.

Recent Academy Award winner Common and Allstate CEO and chairman Tom Wilson served as co-chairs for We Day Illinois and welcomed other notable guests to the reception. Marlee Matlin, actor Dennis Haysbert, CNN’s Sanjay Gupta and Magic Johnson mingled with more than 200 other guests throughout the evening.

The high-energy reception culminated in a surprise performance from country superstars The Band Perry. Even better, the reception raised needed funds that provided free access to We Day Illinois for 15,000 Illinois youth. Bravo! -Photos by Chad Batka
